The second event of the Goldfish Surf Series was held on October 12th,2002
At 24th Street in Cayucos. The small south swell increased overnight provided some rippable 2-4ft peaks for the event. Over 98 competitorsshowed up to the sleepy town of Caycos to compete for cash and prizes.
In the Grom division it was a battle between newcomer Lorin Anderson and Colin Anderson who are in no way related. Colin edged out Lorin in the last few minutes of the final to get the win and huge bag of prizes.
In the Juniors it came down to Johney Craft from Carmel and BummyKoepenick from Carpinteria but in the end the well deserved win would go to Bummy. Koepenick has been on a roll lately and looks like he is not going to let up. Rounding out the final were Nick Argropolis, Kai Ellison, TJ Mortimer, and Steve Roese.
In the ever heated Pro-Am there are always upsets and today there were more than ever. Dustin Ray looked like the man to beat, but narrowly missed advancing out of his semi-final heat putting a stop to a great run. In the end it would be Nate Tyler who sat quietly down the beach, picking off exactly what he needed for the win. Kilian Garland, Greg Pobst, Carl Holm, Henry Mills, and Colin Dodgson rounded out the final.
