Holding it down for Surf City, Craig Newkirk had a stellar 2012 competitive season. We at Surf City aren't just a bunch of groms...we have legend status longboarders too!
Craig banking it:
Craig Newkirk in the blue tee at Easterns:
At ESA Mid Atlantic Regionals at Carolina Beach (in Ankle High Surf!) he finished 4th in Grandmasters Shortboard and 5th in Masters Longboard which of course qualified him for Easterns. At the ESA East Coast Championships in Nags Head he made the Final in Masters Longboard finishing 3rd (narrowly missing 2nd) and finished 13th in Shortboard.
He also won the Masters Longboard Division and finished 3rd in the Vintage Division at the 1st Annual Chris Crocker Memorial at Carolina Beach and made the Final of the Pro Longboard Division at the Clash of the Carolina’s at Surf City.
