And the winner is John Hawk of South Carolina: ""Any Hatteras local will tell you that the key to surviving hurricane season is to hunker down. Still, after days of staying inside (the tube), restless Brett Barley has to step out and stretch his legs."
Honorable mention goes to Beach O'Neal of North Carolina: "I may be mistaken, but I think I saw his fins bleeding with that whack."
And Greg Phuros of Long Beach, NY: "When the local talent is blowing tail like this, who cares who's playing tourist. Brett Barley at home."
