One little known but highly contested award is the Top Judge award. All the judges do a great job and to win this award is a great honor. Big congratulations to Rob Cordero on a well deserved win taking top judge and beating out several multiple time champions. You will forever be the reigning Buddy Top Judge!

While she wasn’t in the contest, she spent the whole time in the water trying on her (way too small) board and we are amped to get her the right size and see her love for the sport flourish. DTs hopes are finally coming true 😆! Thanks @buddypelletier for giving our kid a chance to see how fun this sport is and watch all the groms have a blast out there. We will miss this.

I took over 300 photos in about an hour and a half today at the 20th and final Buddy Pelletier Surfing Competition. This is by far my favorite! The only one I took time to resize and share right now. Lauren, you are AWESOME!!! We love you and are super stoked for you.

I just uploaded the last of the Adaptive photos. These are water shots from a Go Pro. Enjoy.
I have uploaded the Adaptive photos to the Buddy Website. Will have the water shots later. Thank you Amy Nelson for taking these while I was in the water.
I will be adding miscellaneous photos of people and such later. Also, the Adapter Surfing photos need to be uploaded. Should do that by tomorrow night. If anyone has any photos they which to consider for posting let me know. I need Menehunes and Girls.
Photos for Sunday and Saturday are up on the website. I will have my photos up on my site later this week. My photos are watermarked and Amy's are not. So if you want one of her photos please contact her. For one of mine, visit the web site later this week.
I have posted Saturday's photos to the Buddy Website. Both mine and Amy Nelson's photos. I will continue on with Sunday tomorrow. Hope you enjoy them.
On fun small days this was Tiffanie Pound McHale, Buddy and me! He would hold Tiffanie or throw her up on his shoulders and I would either be on my hands or my head if I wasn’t on his back!! On flat days he spanked our asses if we needed it and on days there was surf he’d be GONE! Either way we were never far behind Buddy those days!! #towheadedfreckledburntslamupclubcolonydays
It is A Great Cause for Recognizing Buddies I'llness and Teaching The Youth in the Area Surfing, To Keep them Busy. And to Always Use Sunscreen and Suits to Protect their skin.
