Shaper Tim Stamps provided the weird boards challenging the competitor’s versatility for Nixon’s inaugural Weird Surf Contest held at 9th St. Huntington Beach. No strangers to “getting weird” the SPY + Active Ride Shop team easily adapted to win the team division and sweep the podium with SPY’s Torrey Meister and SPY’s surf ambassador Chris “Cha Cha” Abad winning the individual and expression session respectively.
The winning SPY + Active team went home with weird boards, a weird trophy and their weird selves.
