Eric Geiselman claims the Lost Pro Junior title with brilliant surfing
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 26 March, 2006 : - - Huntington Beach, CA The Lost Pro Junior crowned Eric Geiselman (New Smyrna Beach) as it's champion today Sunday, which saw clean three to four-foot peaks gracing the site of the Association of Surfing Professional (ASP) Grade 1 Pro junior event.
The Lost Pro Junior featured some of the best up-and-coming surfers in North America. With several surfers competing in both the mens and juniors events, the final at the Lost Pro Junior was an exhibition in phenomenal surfing. Nick Rozsa (Oxnard) surfed heroically winning his quarter-final heat and finishing runner-up in his semi-final despite nursing a severely-injured foot.
I decided to surf the day before the competition, and I surfed in front of my house, and I injured my foot pretty badly. I air-dropped inside the barrel and landed on my board, and it compressed against my foot. My big toe ended up bending all the way over to the side of my foot. I tore a couple of ligaments and the cartilage its just really hard to surf, Rozsa said.
Cory Arrambide (Ventura) and Dylan Graves (Puerto Rico) both surfed well beyond their young years and looked poised to win the final. However, it was New Smyrna Beachs Eric Geiselman who surfed brilliantly to claim the Lost Pro Junior title.
Thanks to all our competitors and event sponsors for such an amazing contest. The next event on the ASP North American tour will be the four-star Body Glove Surfbout beginning at Lower Trestles on April 25.
See you there.
