Am Slam Surf Event 3 Pro Am Winners
David Do Carmo, long time Am Slam surfer and pro surfer from Brazil took home the victory in the Pro division.  The fierce competitor narrowly made the final on a last second ride in the semis. He took advantage of his fortune in the final putting the hammer down early and dropping two good scores. His competitors were left scrambling for good waves and no one could match his quality. The $2000 was his along with a gracious attitude and a huge smile! Wesley Santos made his third final of the year earning and second place and $1000 for his efforts. He is in the drivers seat to win the overall title! Alex Lima was the form surfer of the day. unfortunately, his wave luck ran out in the final and he had to settle for 3rd. La Jolla local Jacob Szekely took 4th making his
second final in row. He also threw down easily one of the biggest air revo's we have ever seen at am slam. What a legend!
