Surfing since the trials, Johnston worked his way through the long weekend grind into Sunday’s final, which turned out to be head high and firing thanks to Hurricane Danielle.
The win is Johnston’s first ECSC title. Earlier this year he took home the 2010 East Coast Scholastic Surfing Championships in his New Smyrna Beach backyard.
Charged up and more focused than ever, keep an eye on Jeremy to make a big competitive push through the rest of the year and into 2011.
Former USA Surf Team standout, Jeremy is no stranger to the international stage. “I feel like I’m just now hitting my prime,” he says. “I can’t wait to see what kind of damage I can do on both coasts this coming winter.”
And neither can we. Congrats Jeremy on your win! Check out more on our East Coast hero – and our September featured rider – at xcelwetsuits.com.
