Moose & Spot Final Domonstration Surf

You would think that with their recent successes in Old Farts Surf Co. World Series Surfing Splinter Group series that talent like Moose (Original OFSC No. 5)  and Spot (Original OFSC NO. 6) would put their feet up and live off their prize money.  But no, they jumped at the chance for a final surf on the famous island before migrating north.  The following spectacular shots demonstrate why their talent is being touted as some of the best of all gromets in the world.

OFSC Head Honcho, the Mexican, AKA OFSC Original No. 4, said
"this was the best demonstration of surfing from the young candian upstart I've had the privilege to see".  Moose agreed saying "I felt that I had really perfected my take off and bottom turns and could do them in my sleep."
(Spot gets in on the action)
Spot also said he was at the peak of his performance honed in the competition on the wild west coast.  "I'm really getting some deep barrels and working on my trim and manouevering in there" said Spot.

Fans on the beach were commenting on the style and poise that Moose has brought to the art of surfing.  "Its so graceful and just lovely to watch that young Canuck" said an old lady sitting on the sand under a straw hat.

I'd call this the Olympic effect. What with all the action in Vancouver, seems like this young upstart athletic Moose has brought some Canuck luck to our fair shores. I'm still not convinced she is eligible but it seems like Mex and Spot are well and truly star struck. It remains to be seen if Moose can carry the old fart can back to her home town (which I understand is lacking in basic surf facilities).
