The 3rd Annual LIVE LIKE SION GROMFEST

The day began in the dark as volunteers gathered to help set-up for the 3rd Annual LIVE LIKE SION GROMFEST. The contest venue was at PKS on the south side of the island of Kauai, a place where Sion and his family had surfed countless hours together. Even in the dark you could already hear the surf as the tail end of a south swell pounded the shore. The island was buzzing as they knew that the day of the contest had finally arrived after being postponed a month before due to a close call from two hurricanes. With over a 150 entries, the beach was packed as everyone posted up and got ready for a long day of family fun, while remembering SION MILOSKY, and his way of life. The LIVE LIKE SION GROMFEST was designed around SION's belief of family first, friends, and surfing all combined into one event. Aunty Nalani Taylor opened the event with a prayer and a Hawaiian chant asking for safe passage and reminding everyone why we were here. The first heat paddled out at 6:45 as the buzzer started the first heat a little after 7:00. The diviSIONs were all full, ranging from keiki push-in all the way up to 16-under Longboarding. This year was a little different as a 14-under open diviSION was added for rated kids and o fcourse the "PILI" diviSION was in there too. Keiki push-in had 50 Keiki alone which was the most entries so far to date. In the "PILI", which was a team diviSION, a adult teamed up with a Keiki under-12. Some of the names in the "PILI" were Dustin Barca, and Evan Valiere, long time friends of SION and his family. Families and friends cheered the Keiki on all day and smiles and laughter echoed the beach. It was nice to see so much happiness and good vibes everywhere you looked. Waves were firing coming in at 3-4 foot and light offshore wind. The Keiki push-in stole the show again with the youngest competitors coming in at 3 years of age. People lined the waters edge as they cheered on their favorite. As the competition continued, Raffles were called out over and over with awesome prizes thanks to all the sponsors, supporters and the community itself. It was once again so great to see everyone come together and support such a great human being. The proceeds from the raffles went back to the LIVE LIKE SION foundation and will be allocated to different organizations and further the work of the foundation itself. As the day wrapped up, and the final wave surfed, the celebration continued as the awards ceremony moved over to Poipu Beach. Families and friends once again gathered together and cheered on all the finalist as the prizes and trophies were passed out. The Keiki's were glowing and wore smiles on their faces, as they walked up to get their awards. We're not sure who had more fun the Keiki or their parents! All and all, the 3rd Annual LIVE LIKE SION GROMFEST was a huge success and would not have been possible without the help of our sponsors, friends, families and volunteers. We would like to thank Volcom for their continued support, for making the shirts and hats, giving tons of prizes, and for always supporting the Keiki and of course SION MILOSKY! Also Oakley for their continued support and for all the glasses for the keiki, KonaRed and Poipu surf for the awesome trophies and always supporting the LIVE LIKE SION GROMFEST. A big thank you t oother surf sponsors, Kawika Carvalho, the community, the volunteers, the Beach house, and countless others that helped make this event a big success! Without you all this would not be possible. A sincere Mahalo and aloha to you all! See you all next year! The LIVE LIKE SION GROMFEST staff

210 competitors pack Pleasure Point for the TCT Greatwhite Surf Contest!

The 2015 TCT is in full effect and with 3 events under our belt its time to get to the meat of the tour. We rolled into Santa Cruz on Friday afternoon and pulled right into Freeline Surf Shop for the pre event parking lot party. We set up the grill, rolled in the quarter pipe, cranked the music and before we could blink there were just about 200 people screaming and yelling to get in the contest the following morning. The next morning we rolled up just as the sun rolled over the mountains and we got our first look at the pumping Pleasure Point. I mean it was pumping. The kids were frothing so we signed up the last of the 210 competitors and threw the Juniors into the line of fire first. The day rolled along perfect and before we knew it, it was time to crown a champion! Check below for a full recap of the pre event party and the Greatwhite surf contest! We signed up 150 kids at the biggest pre party in history. Tubes where rare, but there were certainly a few good ones. This is Trevor he entertained the pre party patrons all night. Eithan would go on to take 2nd place in the Juniors and earn his Golden Ticket to TCT Champs. Mini ramp at the Pre Party kept the crowd entertained. Nick HDez letting the tail fly late in the day. Skin Dog was in his element at the Pre Party. Collin Deveze is always one of the front runners to take the win, as you can plainly see. The crowd was thick all day with Pleasure Point delivering on her promise of great waves. Pleasure Point was offering up some amazing waves for the event and kids were taking full advantage. Champagne (sparkling cider) showered the winners and the Squids! 1st peak and Sewers were firing all day with non stop south swell. Liam Osborne dressed to impress for the awards ceremony. Willie Eagleton was in the zone the entire day and would go on to win the Pro Am division, earning him $500.00. The awards ceremony at Pleasure Point is second to none. Eithan was off to a great start getting one of the highest heat scores of the morning rounds.   The winners and all their goodies!
