Blake’s Latest Contest Results
Were not as good as he hoped, but other than that Blake Jones performed well, flaring up every chance he got. Aaron Cormican ended up taking the win as he usually does in any comp in Florida. He added $2000 to his bank account by the end of the day.
The event was the VQS SeaCow Surf Series put on by Volcom and held at First Peak, Sebastian Inlet, Florida. The waves were inconsistent and one- to three-foot. Not exactly what everyone was hoping for with $2000 on the line but everyone gave their all in pursuit of the dough. Blake also put the excuse of his summertime ankle injury behind him and pushed the limits on every inviting Inlet wedge thrown at him. It seems he is slowly creeping out of the shadows of the broken ankle that took him down early in the year because he is looking sharp and light on his feet again. Battling his way through a few heats with convincing wins he was eventually taken down only to regroup, pack up, and head to Puerto Rico. There is no way to shake off a loss as good as a surf trip to warm water with good buddies.
