Brandon Guilmette wins event # 4!

Bruno Rodrigues is 2007 HB Pro-Am Surf Series Pro Champion!

Huntington Beach, CA, (Sept.2 2007) The HB Pro-Am Surf Series presented by HB Dodge, Toyota of HB and HB Ford event # 4 was held at the H.B. Pier with some good shaped 2-3 waves all weekend. "We’ve been so lucky to have good weather and surf for all four events this season.” says owner and event operator Jeff Deffenbaugh. The 2007 title was on the line between Bruno and Adam Virs who both would be battling it out to become the overall champion.

The Surf Series is utilizing computer scoring and running only 4 man heats for all the divisions. “I wanted to give everyone the best opportunity to advance their skills. Also added is a $40.00 cash prize for per each heat win for the competitors in the Pro division. This provides great incentive to win your heat.”

Saturday was the amateur divisions competing with the Maters, Boys, women and Longboard Finals being completed that afternoon with some 8’s and 9’s in the score line for the Masters and Longboard heats.

Sunday was the Pro division, Men and Juniors Finals as well. Once the semis where complete, Bruno did not advance into the final leaving the door open for Virs to take the title. The Pro Final was set with Macy Mullen, Jesse Merle Jones both from Hawaii, Adam Virs from Ventura and local Brandon Guilmette. With $1500 for first and the overall $2000 title prize up for grabs, you knew the action was going to be good. Virs was leading the final at the half way point. But when some good set waves came in, Brandon got the best of it, scoring a 9 point ride! That left everyone needing one good score to take the win. Adam got two more solid waves, scoring in the 6‘s but was not enough to take the lead. Once the 30 minute final was over, it was Guilmette taking the win! With Virs taking second it looked good for him to take the overall win by adding to his point’s total. After the computer updated the points and recalculated the best three of four results for each competitor, it was Bruno holding off Virs by only 20 points!!! Wow, close as it gets!
