THE HEAT WAS ON through Florida’s first winter swell and the Eco Pro wasted no time taking advantage of south Florida bombs!!!

Eco Pro stop #3, Future 6 Pro at Jupiter Beach, was held Sunday, Nov 17, in solid 5-6’+ north swell. Under some cold, windy, and gloomy conditions plus a king tide with almost no beach to work on, the entire staff was forced to operate under very challenging conditions proving the Eco Pro has the team that walks the walk. This stop’s team included Beach Directors Michael Bloom, Bryan Craig, and Jim Tolliver, Event Directors Donny Ottofaro and Jesse Robinson of Future 6, announcers Travis Ajay and William Kimball, and Judge’s Panel Eddie Guilbeau, Barry Pasonski, Bruce Bernstein and Head Official Jeff Klugael.

The man to beat was Chase Modelski. He surfed with speed and accuracy that took him to the win in both the Men’s AND the Junior Pro Divisions. He is currently first in the ratings for the Junior Pro and second in the Men’s Pro Divisions. PHOTO : DUGAN

The Men’s and Junior Pro were missing a few competitors due to injuries like Tommy Coleman and Logan Kamen opening up opportunities to advance for the other competitors. Junior Pro points leader, Chase Modelski, was in form and brought his A game winning both the Men’s Pro & Junior Pro finals in his own backyard. Men’s Pro points leader, Daniel Glenn, also grabbed another solid result with a 3rd place in Men’s Pro.  Glenn is in position to win back to back titles this season. USA team member and recent gold medal at ISA games winner, Ryan Huckabee, made two finals during the Future 6 Pro weekend earning a 2nd place position in Junior Pro and 4th in Mens Pro. Giorgio Gomez, fresh off a quarter finals result at the WQS Barbados event followed up with a 2nd place in Men’s Pro final.

Last year’s overall winner and this year’s points leader Daniel Glenn did not take home the win but ended up in 3rd place in the Men’s Pro. He only sits 596 points ahead in the ratings with one more event to go. Time will tell if he repeats his win for a second time. PHOTO : DUGAN

Australian WQS competitor and stand out, Amiya Doyle, won a very competitive Women’s Pro final over points leader, Coral Schuster, USA team member Sara Abbott and local ESA standout Sydney Corbitt.

Masters Pro final was stacked, but it was Jupiter local William Kimball edging out Jimmy Blumenfeld, Bryan Craig and points leader Jay Smith. Amateur division winners included Chris Prankun Open Men’s,  Ellie Barimo Open Women’s, Vance Weyandt Boys U12, Sofia Gamboa Girls U12, Tanner Corbitt Boys U16, Sydney Corbitt Girls U16. Thank you to our staff for doing an awesome job in grueling conditions!!

The Future 6 Pro is a great example of growth with a supportive line up of sponsors from across the state including Island Root Kava Bar, Surfing’s Evolution and Preservation Foundation, Surf Taco Jupiter, Southern 441 Toyota, Ultra Finish Painting, Crowd Control Surfboards, Ground Swell Surf Shop, and Nomad Surf Shop. Of course, lets not forget this season’s points winners grand prizes are provided by Huey Surf Charters (Mentawai), Metztli Tours (El Salvador), Surf Training Factory, and McCranels Orthodontics.

This contest, thanks to Eco Pro Chairman Jim Tolliver and Future 6 VP Jesse Robinson hitting the pavement, produced some first ever BOOSTER sponsors local to the Jupiter and Treasure Coast areas. These booster sponsors kicked up the pro division purses to stoke out the competitor line up. Special thanks to Konrady  Coring and Cutting, TKO Plumbing, Meyer Lucas Compass Team, Tropical Waters Pool Services, Laid Right Flooring, Juno Beach Mobil and Matthias Fretz Real Estate for adding something extra special to the Future 6 Pro.

There were a few nice size sets for the event and Matthew Glenn made sure he got his share on his way to a equal fifth in the Men’s Pro. PHOTO : DUGAN
