- VQS Sea Slug Surf Series
- Saturday June 1st, 2002
- Zuma Beach
- Surf 3-6 feet
The first event of the 2002 VQS started off with the Sea Slug at Zuma Beach with hollow waves and 72 amped competitors of all ages battling out for all sorts of cash and prizes. With the sun making a showing thru the June gloom in time for the finals, all had a good time.
In the Groms division final there were a couple of new Sea Slug finalists mixed with a couple of veteran finalists. In the end the experience won out and Matt Mohagen took the win beating out Cory Arrambide for the early season ratings lead and the all-important invite to the VQS Championship.
The Juniors division was a hard fought battle from the start. With obstacles such as pool toys to maneuver around and the tide on the rise, the juniors made a great showing. The final was all Colin Dodgson. Picking off a 7 on his second ride he continued the pace and took the prizes away from Bummy and newcomer Scott Dunton.
