Vans Surf Team Update

The team has been busy, after two months of international travel including Tasmania, Western Australia, and South Africa, the Gudauskas Brothers returned home for WQS 6 star-prime at Lowers. Dane and Pat went down in rounds of 64 and 48 so it was up to Tanner to carry on. Tanner made it to the quarters, posting his best result in a 6 star to date, moving him to 15th on the WQS rankings. Tim Reyes returned home for 2 days from a hectic WCT run only to head to Tahati for the next stop where he will be joined by Pat Gudauskas, who received a wildcard into the event, best of luck to Timmy and Pat.

The Florence family has been in Scotland for the cold water 6 star. John John made it though a couple of rounds before losing out in tough conditions, i.e. 45 degree water and inconsistent waves over jagged slab rock.
