final results - 2008 Rip Curl Stew Surf Comp - Cox Bay, Tofino
Jun/21/2008: It's kinda windy and a bit of a mess this afternoon. Pete Devries, Noah Cohen, Bastien Lanusse and a couple of guys from Suyulita are dominating the comp. The final rounds are tomorrow for pretty much every division. The girls are doing well with Leah Oke standing out. It's a super friendly vibe with the stew, half pipe and Sitka board demos and the weather is great.
