Congratulations to Michael Barrus the winner of the Surfline Tripwire contest! After a great deal of deliberation by Surfline, the San Diego surfer/writer/traveler/photog took home the grand prize, a free trip to El Salvador courtesy of WaterWays’. Michael’s well-documented spring 2011 trip to SW France beat out the other 11 entrants in a democratic vote amongst editors and surf travel experts.
When asked how stoked he was on winning the free surf trip, Barrus told Surfline this from a dreary office in a Canadian university.
“I’ve been sitting in an office and staring at fog and rain for the last nine months. I could use this more than any other time in my life, to be honest.”
Stay tuned as we will be offering another free surf trip for the best Tripwire starting next month over the course of 2013.
How to submit:
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with no more than five low res jpgs of the trip – or a link, if it’s already posted somewhere – to be considered in the monthly contest. Surfline editors will assess these initial submissions and email potential monthly finalists for more images, text and captions.
