The last stop of the Cali 2011/2012 VQS Tour ended with a bang! We arrived on the beach at the butt crack of dawn to set up but nothing could prepare us from what came next, as we called for the competitor sign-up sheets and before we knew it there was 300+ competitors waiving forms in our faces. We got as many competitors in as the day light would allow us just like that it was the biggest VQS event in the history of the tour. We drew up the heats, sent the Juniors in the water and got the show under way! Check out all the highlights from the days craziness as competitors fought for those valuable points towards VQS Champs. Special thanks to everyone that made this one of the most successful Cali tour runs in history!
