A few of our Hurley co-workers just finished up a pretty awesome "work" week. They were at the 8th annual Active Ride Shop Willabong event, which went down in Cardiff, San Diego, for the past three days. The event opened up with a Hurley surf day and a Rob Machado ping pong tourney before ending with a team format surf contest, where the Hurley squad of PK, Punker Pat, Nick Kovack and Phil Bannan took second place behind Spy. At least we can suppress our jealousy with a little bit of pride. Click "full story" to check out the photo highlights. Photos: PK
