Dos Pueblos Surf Team Surfer of the Week
Last year’s Team Captain, Tavis is well respected amongst his peers as a leader and all around good guy. Being that it’s Tavis’ last year of high school, the regular-foot has one more year to compete in the toughest division of the SSS, the Mens Shortboard division in the LA-SB Counties region. Look for Tavis to boost his year-end rating for the 2011/2012 season after a middle-of-the-pack finish last year. Tavis posted an equal 9th at the first event of this season at C-Street in Ventura.
