Taylor Clark Is off to Fiji after Winning the VQS Championships


17 year old, Taylor Clark, of Encinitas, CA has finally gotten the second place monkey off his back after his victory in the prestigious Volcom VQS Championships in Newport Beach, CA. After coming up short in the two previous years with back-to-back runner-up finishes, Taylor Clark dominated the field in the Pro-Am division and took the win, which had eluded him. With the victory Taylor has been awarded an all expense paid trip to compete in the Volcom VQS World Championships held in conjunction with the ASP WCT event in Tavarua, Fiji. Good luck Taylor, we're extremely proud of you and wish you success at Cloudbreak, one of the best waves across the globe.

Pre-heat smile before serious business in the water. Taylor punishing the Newport waters. Not only did TC win a trip to Fiji, but he also won a free pie to the face! A gold jacket + two big checks = one happy grom.
