Hunter Lewis (Dude in Photo) and Tiare Friedman (Lady in Photo) both competed with 240 plus contestants in surfing. Both competed in long boarding heaps. With three to four foot faces, competitors made the most of what the surf has to offer as Kona-winds gave push to the formidable lefts that hit the shallow reef along with the slow incoming tide.

Hunter is a Tiki's bartender and can be found behind the bar most week days. Tiare is the Sales and Events Coordinator at Tiki's Grill & Bar, she is also a team rider and model for Honolua Surf Company.
