Former Vans Pier Classic Champion Micah Byrne Ignites Flawless Surf
Posted 03/24/2011 03:29:14 by Bobby
2007 Vans Pier Classic Champion and Huntington Beach local Micah Byrne capitalized on his familiarity of his local break today to absolutely dominate his heat. The Californian opened his account with three electric backhand bashes on a left breaking into the pier, and absolutely tore apart a long righthander shortly after with precise frontside railwork to achieve one of the event's highest heat totals on his first two waves, a 15.33 out of 20.
Although Byrne may not be competing full-time anymore, his impressive performance today make him a serious contender for a second Vans Pier Classic title.
Tune back in tomorrow morning where Byrne will continue his 2011 Vans Pier Classic campaign in the Round of 64!
