6/1/2011: Updated 4 days after the contest ended. …Lost rider Aaron Cormican came less than a point away from making the final but probably pulled the move of the event on the first day when he stuck a “gorkin flip”. He probably would have made the final but he had maybe a couple too many Bud Light Limes in the “Beer Garden”. Gorkin wasn’t too bummed because everyone made some money and had a super fun time. Overall everyone said the contest was one of the best they’ve done in a while. Even Mr. Slater showed up the second day to check out the action. Chris Ward and Shane Beschen also surfed in the event at Churches in San Clemente. Thanks to Benji Weatherly and Bud Light for putting on such a great event.

Ben Bourgeois is in the event as well and will most likely be riding a Mayhem shape.
