This Saturday - The Jam is On !
On Tybee Island this Saturday, at 18th St beach access.
Come hang out on the beach and watch the 3rd annual paddle surf jam.
Paddlers from all over Chatham County (and beyond) will face off to find this year's master jammer. Starts at 9am, rain or shine, hell and high water.
The stakes will be high this year as surfers compete for a vintage P&H Surf Mocassin. "That is a great prize and should really 'up' the excitement " said a man standing next to one of the organizers yesterday.
Some hot favorites to watch this year are last years winner Zach 'The Chaco Kid' Smith. Since winning the classic Wold Ski at last year's event, Zach has been out west practicing on heavy point breaks and big swells. " We did a little crabbing between sets" said the ever optimistic Mr Smith.
But that could all be for nothing.
Word is that ex SC&K staff member Nick 'Snake Bite' Scoville will be dropping in with his signature move, the Scoville Slide, perfected to perfection to take back his crown. Two hot newcomers to watch out for this year are Dennis 'Big Boi' Bonner and Tommy Morningstar Thompson from Florida. Both have been spied greasing the their fins with extra dripping and both are hungry young sled shredders . Mountain man, Kevin 'no pseudonym needed' Black is competing for the first time and expectations for a grand performance are high.
More updates are coming soon. Here are some pictures from last year and bare no resemblance to this year's event whatsoever
