7th Annual Reef Sweetwater PRO AM 2011 | Oceanic Street, Wrightsville Beach, NC

July 15th-17th kicked off this years 7th Annual Reef Sweetwater Pro Am at Oceanic Street along the shores of Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. In its 7th year, the Reef Sweetwater Pro Am attracts thousands of spectators, surfers and professional athletes from around the globe, flocking to the North Carolina Coast for a weekend of fun in the sun. Once again this year, we were blessed with a stomach to chest high swell that stuck around all weekend, providing ample conditions for competitors to compete towards the $20,000 prize purse. I shot the majority of the contest on friday, saturday, and sunday, through all divisions: Pro, Junior, Longboard, Womens, and guppies. I’ve put together two slideshows of the event. The first one is of the finals on Sunday July 17th. Finalists include Phillip Goold, Aaron Cormican, Fisher Heverly and Rob Machado. The second slideshow is a compilation of competition highlights throughout the three day festival. Enjoy!
