BIA 2014 TOUR – MANHATTAN BEACH
Bodyboarders and spectators gathered at Manhattan Beach on Saturday, March 22, 2014 for the start of the 2014 CBC BIA Pro/Am Tour! Competitors did their best with the conditions presented to them—mainly overcast conditions and 1-3 foot waves with an occasional head high waves rolling through. We are proud to say that our Illest team boarders Sean McElroy and Justin Cadiente participated in the event and represented well! Sean McElroy competed in AAA and Pro Open, earning himself 1st place in both divisions as well as a $250 cash prize. He also got the three divisions move of the contest with a big air reverse spin. Justin Cadiente competed and placed in three divisions, 1st place in Masters, 3rd in Pro Open and 3rd and Pro Drop Knee. The BIA tour will make it’s next stop on Saturday, May 3, 2014 at Ponto State Beach in Carlsbad, California. If you’re in the area, be sure to check it out!
