Wildcoast put on a pro division for their 10th annual surf event down in Imperial Beach. The Dempsey Pro was named after a pioneer surfer of the Tijuana Sloughs and a legend in Imperial Beach, named Dempsey Holder. Austin Ware arrived fresh from Australia with a magic Simon Anderson and straight into shoulder high punchy peaks. Austin’s long time friend Zach Plopper was running the event and was creative with the format which had everything from a no-losers round, to four man heats and man-on-man. Finding his rhythm throughout the day Austin finished up on top, “It felt great to have a win in my surf native San Diego area and hang with some good friends at the beach all day”.
