Blake Jones finishes 3rd in the O’neill Sebastian Inlet Pro
Chemistry team rider Blake Jones had an excellent showing last weekend at the fifth annual ONeill Sebastian Inlet Pro, a four-star WQS event. This is Blakes first real year on the WQS fresh off an appearance at the ASP World Junior Championships. It is always good to start the season strong and not be forced to play catch up all season.
Blake was one of the standouts of the event with the press going as far as saying, Ã¢â‚¬Å“In terms of pure significance, if an event can belong to a surfer besides the winner in terms of individual significance, the glory belonged to the 20-year-old Sebastian local Blake Jones.Ã¢â‚¬Â
The weekend didnt end with just a good result. Blake also came up on some pretty good prize money. The breakdown was $4000.00 for the 3rd place finish, $500.00 for the events highest single wave score, $200.00 for the best local competitor finish, and $50.00 for winning a bet with Ryan Divel that the Orlando Magic would take down the Lakers. Not bad for the little guy. You can read the complete story and check out some cool photos of the event on Surfline.
