The Matt Gray Memorial is a celebration of life and community love. The event is the only one of its kind that mixes skating and surfing into one contest. The skate event was held on Friday, April 11th at the Atlantic Beach Skate Park and drew more than 30 registered skaters and over 200 spectators. With a great community atmosphere, skaters from all over the beach ranging from 6 years old to 40 competed in front of a huge crowd that cheered them on all night. The surf contest was held at 19th Street in Atlantic Beach on Saturday, April 12th. The entire event brought in close to $4,000 which was raised through the events entry fee and money raised through the raffle. All proceeds go towards a scholarship in Matt Gray’s honor to a Senior at Fletcher High School. Last year, Marshall LaFrance and Jake McGuire each won $1,500 scholarships for their future college endeavors. ALL PHOTOS: JIM WALKER

Red Bull Call em Out

This past weekend Red Bull came to town and ran a unique formatted surf contest dubbed, “Call em out.” 16 Surfers battled head to head in a double elimination surf contest. The event allows surfers to call each other out and pick who they wanted to surf against.

Sunrise had a great showing with all of our team riders finishing in the top 10. Some highlights from the day were Tristan Thompson and Ryan Briggs throwing out some insane upside down air reverses which scored above the 9-point range. White sunglasses aka Cody Thompson snagged the highest score of the day a 9.8 with an assortment of moves that left his opponent in “combo land.” The double elimination format aloud everyone to get a fair chance at brining home the $1,200 first place prize. In the quarterfinals Evan Thompson had a choice to choose between younger brother Tristan and older brother Cody. Without hesitation Evan chose Tristan and handed little brother his second loss of the day putting him out of the contest. After that heat you could really tell that Evan was starting to get into a rhythm. He plowed through another heat and placed himself in a heat with Gabe Kling who also had zero loses. Evan was narrowly beaten by Gabe and ended up in a drama filled heat versus older brother Cody. The heat started out very slow with both competitors struggling to pull in a score over a 4. It started to heat up when Cody ripped the bag out of a chest high right runner. When Cody got to the inside something was wrong. He took his leash off and grabbed his right leg in pain. It turns out Cody had a cramp in the top of his quad and couldn’t get rid of it. This left the whole line up to kid brother Evan who executed two scoring waves and put older brother out. After this heat Evan put himself in the final with Gabe Kling. Both surfers battled back and forth over the 20 minute final and gave the crowd something to watch and cheer for. In the end Gabe edged out Evan and won this years Red Bull “Call em out”. Good job and congratulations to our whole team who represented all day. Results are below. Till next year, we outch here.
