Dan Worley

Our second event of the season was a full 2 days event, making this contest the largest Bodyboarding Event in Florida.

Conditions were great on both days. Glassy 3-4 ft waves all day long under sunny skies made this a real nice beach day for Saturday and simlar conditions, but smaller, for Sunday.

Dan Worley took home $500 for the first place in the PRO division.

Devin Ricke took first place in the DK, Steven Tyson took first place in the AM, Alfonso Parodi took first place in MASTERS. For the first time ever, we had a JUNIOR division in the water. The FBA is commited to promote the sport for the youth.
