On Saturday the 15th, running through Sunday the 16th, the BCSA held the Quiksilver Roxy Summer Surf Jam 2000, the first Pro-Am surf competition ever to be held in Canada.

The event was held at Cox Bay, Tofino BC, with conditions leaving much to be desired. The waves were about three to five feet, and in the afternoon the onshore winds picked up making the waves almost impossible to surf.

By the Quarter finals, the wave conditions had dissipated to three foot slop. By the Finals the waves had turned into complete slop, almost un-surfabale, but the competitors made it look like they were perfect.

The raining champ, Raph Bruhwiler put out a great show, but came up a little short loosing to Peter Devries, the junior Champion from the World Qualifier 2000. Sepp Bruhwiler, also a huge contender, came up a little short of his potential, in third place. In fourth place was Phill Loader, who many thought had won the final.

The Women's Open final, which consisted of Leah Oke, Jenny Hudnall, and Catherine Bruhwiler. Most would have thought the raining champ Leah Oke would have won, but it was Jenny Hudnall who took the gold, and Catherine Bruhwiler following in her brothers footsteps, coming in second place, leaving Leah Oke in third place.

The next day, Sunday the 16th was the Longboard division, which I was unable to make it to. The finalist champion of the Longboard division was Mike Stupka. The whole event was outstanding, there was a huge turnout, and the competition was high.
We are all looking forward to the next contest
