||Owen just came off a great performance at the Mid Atlantic event 4 in Surf City, NC. The 9-year-old powerhouse didn’t let the wind & rain effect him, he was ripping. He posted the highest wave of the event-a 9.0 earning the name “manchild” from the judges. Fave thing about Surf City: It always has good rights & lefts with not many closeouts. Fave surfer: Kelly Slater. Local spot: The South End, Wrightsville. Goals: To keep having fun surfing, win an East Coast Champ title & go to the Nationals!
