Mia competed this weekend in the Volcom Bushfish QVS in North Padre. This is one of our favorite contests of the year. Last year she placed 5th overall in her AG and this year the 10 and under division had around 35 kids, so she had her work cut out for her.
Early morning drive to the island
Getting in the water to practice before her heat
One of the things that makes this contest so fun is that it is geared to the kids and Volcom does not disappoint. They really show the kids a great time. Flour bags to throw flour at each other, bottles of chocolate syrup to pour in each others hair and slip n slides with baked beans to slide through. Yuk, is it gross but the kids just LOVE it.
Mia got 3rd in her first heat, so she moved on to the semi-finals, where she got 3rd. From there she moved on to the repo-recharge finals, where she again got 3rd and moved to the finals.
Waiting for the awards. She was nervous.
She got 6th place in the finals and was stoked to get a cool trophy and a bag full of Volcom goodies.
Thanks you Volcom for putting on a great contest year after year for Texas surfers!! You guys rock!! See you next year!
