In a first-of-its-kind Weekly Sick-Quence feat, this week's winner is actually the surfer pictured, proving that oceanic skills and wicked wordplay can go hand in hand — Eddie Guilbeau of Melbourne Beach, FL: "Eddie Guilbeau might only have an Associate's degree from Brevard Community College but he also has a Master's degree in shuv-its and above the lip tricks from the Central Florida University of tailwhips."
Honorable mention goes to JHawk of Mt. Pleasant, SC: "If Joel Parkinson calls this ugly, you can tell him to shuv-it. Eddie Guilbeau stylishly pushes the performace envelope with skate-inspired ripping."
And George Stanley of Hamden, CT: "Eddie Guilbeau goes round and round in a wave made by Hurricane Debbie. The Power of her wave and Eddies surfing makes me dizzy in a good way Thanks Debbie and Eddie!"
Eddie will receive a pair of prescription-friendly Hobie Polarized Olas sunglasses in Brown Wood Grain frame and HydroClean Polycarbonate Copper lens, featuring TR-90 frame material, 8 base curve, integrated hinge, Megol nose pads and sweat bar/anti fog gasket (www.HobiePolarized.com).
