Galveston and Ohana Surf & Skate hosted us for the second Texas stop of the Rip My Shred Stick 2012 Summer Tour. A small, little windswell at the Galveston Pier provided the perfect opportunity for the 75 stoked kids to practice their longboarding and reach into their creative bag of tricks. With the help of Rob Machado, Pat O'Connell, Noah Snyder and Zach "Hula" Hartley, many kids stood up and surfed the first waves of their lives. And with those first-ever rides it's safe to say a new daily record of smiles and high fives has officially been set. A big thanks goes out to William "Boog" Cram and the crew at Ohana Surf & Skate for all their help in making this such a great event.

One hundred of Corpus Christi's finest young surfers met up with us this morning at the Bob Hall Pier for the second stop of the Rip My Shred Stick 2012 Summer Tour. Everyone from first-time six-year-olds to 16-year-old rippers were taking it to the playful 1-3 foot windswell. The judges had their hands full as the group of youngsters mixed it up with headstands, front-flip dismounts, meditation poses into the shorebreak and some good ol' fashioned Texan cutbacks. In the end it was Devin Delagarza who took home the win with a combination of nose-riding and progressively fun maneuvers. A big thanks goes out to Benjamin's, Julie Doyle, Allen Byas and everyone else from the Corpus Christi community for your help in making this event one to remember.

Rip My Shred Stick made European landfall yesterday in San Sebastian, Spain. And though it might not have been as heavily anticipated a debut as other American exports, like say, McDonald's and Starbucks, who've found a second home across the Atlantic, we think Rip My Shred made a good first impression. PK, the unofficial official RMSS comissioner, reported that even though it was a different continent, it was the same story in the end: Kids had fun (see the picture to the left for proof).
