Tybee Island Results
The Tybee Island Takeover turned out to be a big success today. Even though tropical storm Emily faded significantly, she still sent Tybee some decent swell! Waves were fun and lining up on the inside of the jetty as we had hoped. The tide filled in just right as the heats began. This year it was decided that we would split the divisions up into 3 categories: Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced. The finals for each division were really close but everyone seemed to have fun and get some good waves. Here are some results and photos of the event today. Enjoy! :) Beginner: 1st: Steven Dabois 2nd: Hunter Morris 3rd: Logan Harst Intermediate: 1st: Sean Taylor 2nd: Brian Nettles 3rd: Dustin Calbreath Advanced: 1st: Benji Sanders 2nd: Zach Belmonte (Team Zap) 3rd: Leland Lively Jetties Spectators Team rider Zach Belmonte Intermediate division winner Sean with contest organizer Brad on the wave behind him.
