That’s right! 2 of the 4 finalists of the XCEL Sunset Pro were On A Mission team riders. Congratulations to 1st Place Joel Centeio and 4th Place Alex Gray!
“This win feels insane it’s such a huge relief!” said Centeio during the awards ceremony on the beach. “I’ve been waiting for a big win since turning pro six years ago. I had a feeling it was going to come today.”
Centeio takes home $10,000 for the title, as well as 1,500 points towards his WQS rating.
“Look at the list of past winners” “some of the best surfers in the world,” he added. “This is a dream come true! I’m psyched.” Centeio will go on to compete in the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing.

dave: “ya Haole boy! 4th place! stoked for you shredderrr!”
