Hurricane Felicia didn’t fizzle for the the 25th Annual Quiksilver/Kamaaina Motors Big Island Pro-Am Surfing Trials held at Honolii Beach Park. Triple overhead surf saw Soliel Farnsworth and Shruti Kartil crowned men’s and women’s champions.

Sponsor prizes, airfare and entry to a North Shore pro surf contest were awarded to the top four men, top two body boarders, two longboarders and two women.  Soliel Farnsworth won a Surftech Dick Brewer 6’8” “Back Door” model. The Quiksilver-Kamaaina Motors Big Island Pro Am Surfing Trials is a launching pad for amateurs hoping to become surfing professionals and is limited to Hawaii Island residents.

Stan Lawrence, Orchidland Surfboards owner and contest organizer, said "Awesome, epic contest, something that the Big Island should be proud of.  We had the best waves in the island chain and the brotherhood of surfing is alive and well."
