The 7th Annual Reef/Sweetwater Pro-Am Surf Fest went down in Wrightsville Beach, NC, from July 15-17, 2011.
Lots of heavyhitters were in the house, and we're stoked to report that our very own Aaron "Gorkin" Cormican finished in 3rd place and took home a check for $2,000! To celebrate his podium finish, later that night Gorkin generously shelled out a third of his prize money ($657.93 to be exact) to buy lots of stiff drinks and shots for his surfing compatriots. Good times were had by all, and plenty of hangovers were endured the next morning. Gotta love Gorkin!
And let's not foget fellow Arnette team rider Michael Dunphy who also had a solid showing, finishing equal 7th and earning $700 for his efforts. Nice job, fellas!
