Reigning champ, A.J. Haiby, won a tight finals heat at the IGSA NorAm Finals to claim victory for a second year in a row! A.J. had a perfect run down the Bonelli Park course and blasted into first place on the final straightaway.
"We hit an epic mountain pass yesterday, 60+ mph staightaways into hairpins. Fast pack riding. I normally never wear leathers outside of racing but going that fast next to a group the leather was a nice comfort to have. Tony and Pete had a bit of a crash but got away with minor bruising.We got 7 or 8 runs in before getting busted by the state trooper who was way chill (6 miles long runs so it was plenty)."
This past weekend Harrison Roach pulled off a big win in Biarritz, France. The annual Joel Tudor Duct Tape Invitational, accompanied by the Quiksilver Pro - France, brought numerous legends and up-and-comers to the beaches of Biarritz. Congrats to Harrison for nose-riding his way to $4000.

Here is one from the archives. This was sent to us back in the early 90's. The thing that makes this really special is that it was done using the ancient native technique of tattooing. If this is you, get back to us!

Sadly, this past weekend Sector 9 lost a long time team rider & family member, Dustin Ray. Not only was D Ray a great surfer and ambassador for the Central Coast, but he was mainly known for his almost unbelievably positive attitude. Even through hardships he would never stop smiling.
Dustin was a hard worker and single parent of 3 children. His children’s mother also passed away a few years ago. Now leaving Dustin’s Mom alone to raise the kids. She will not be able to handle this burden herself, so we are asking our friends and family to help out and donate to Dustin’s family at this incredibly difficult time.
