The first event of the VQS series for 2010/11 was held in WA at Scarborough Beach. We arrived to the beach at dawn and were surprise to find fun 1 to 2 foot waves up and down the beach after the swell maps where reading dead flat the night before.

Early morning bliss

The competitors started flocking down to the beach around 7am to sign up for the event, all pumped up for a big day of surfing and fun in the warm Western Australian sun.

The day was jam packed with heats starting with the girls, followed by the groms, juniors and pro am divisions. If you weren’t in the water surfing a heat there was lots of fun activities happening on the beach with games running all day from sand castle competitions to dance offs with lots of prizes up for grabs.
