Dane, Tanner and Patrick Gudauskas join the Komunity team
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 29 February, 2008 : - - Komunity Project proudly welcomes San Clemente's own Dane, Tanner and Patrick Gudauskas to the Komunity team. The guys sat down after a surf at Pipe. (Kinda wind slopped northeast swell. But Off the Wall had a couple of fun ones.) They had a little down time and punched out few words for us.
Dane has been looking to quench his thirst for competitive prowess by traveling around the world doing WQS events. "I want to qualify to be on the WCT surfing at my best, against the best, in the best waves of the world!!!" Dane will continue his pursuit to become a championship surfer by surfing world-class waves while also competing on the WQS in hope of a CT berth in the near future.
Tanner, the youngest of the Gudauskas trio has been blazing his own tracks to become one of the best junior surfers in the world. He proved this on the international stage of the 2008 World Junior Championships.
At the North Narrabeen Tanner surfed on point in testing 6 foot + conditions to finish an equal third and secure himself with this years World Junior WQS Seed. In this year of 2008 he hopes to make his mark on the WQS and qualify to be a player on the championship level while continuing his junior pursuits.
Patrick's wants to crush the WQS in 2008. And he's off to a running start after the first event of the season where Patrick clinched victory at Sebastian Inlet to take home the largest purse in East Coast history. He is no stranger to the Winner's Circle with 2006 WQS victories in France and Spain.
2006 saw Patrick come a breath away from a WCT berth finishing three spots out of the prestigious tour. Instead of defeat, Patrick saw a chance to grow. He suffered an unfortunate ankle injury which took him out of the race in 2007. However with his confidence and health back, Patrick looks like a bat out of hell hungry to climb the charts to the top.
