Yesterday morning when we got to the beach, Tyler & I went to grab coffee. It was overcast, and the waves weren't looking so hot. Tyler was all about being Mr. Positive, "You know what? It's probably going to clear up and be an awesome day. It's totally going to happen. It's going to be like a miracle or something." He was right. After a couple of delays, the sun came out and so did the waves. It was a really close final round, and like Joel said when giving out the prizes, "It really sucks to have to pick a winner, because everybody is so awesome..." At the end of the contest here's what went down. Pickle came in with the big check, Justin came close to winning his 3rd Duct Tape with a respectable 2nd place, Al killed it, and Jared made it into the finals for the first time at this contest. Hell yeah.
1st Tyler Warren
2nd Justin Quintal
3rd Alex Knost
4th Jared Mell
Then we all went to some crazy traditional Astur restaurant where bagpipes pumped up the jams all night. Can't wait for the next Duct Tape.
