I t has been 2 days since the hail storm and the 1st Da Hui Texas shootout went off without a hitch.

In less than favorable conditions, waist to occasional head high wind-blown current-riddled peaks allowed Pete Mussio, Danielle Dodson, Ryan Cobb and others to finish 1st in the top of their divisions.

"The waves were contestable" stated Hans Homan, Dana Point, CA local, and "it was anyone's game out there."

The crowd was there as well as the media and local radio station C101.

Boy-howdy did we have fun with real barbeque and great aloha on the beach. Even the kids that didn't make it through their heats were smiling as they watched their favorite pros and locals tear it up amongst the shifting conditions...the Heats were tough with competitors coming from all over the state and a few from out of state.What a great event and an even greater after party!

Big Mahalo's to Da Hui for stepping up and investing prize money in the Texas youth! The first time in almost 20 Years!

Thanks for shedding some light on the Lone Star Surfing Community.

Big thanks to all the photographers, participants and parents for making this a trip well worth going home for!

If you've never experienced the true meaning of Aloha, then you need to visit this little paradise known as Texas at next years contest!
