Congratulations to our high performance winners from week 1!

9 year old Kelia Gallina @missteahupoo from Tahiti, we’re sending Kelia a prize pack from Future Fins @futuresfins

12 year old Karen Awad @kadenawad from Maui, Karen is receiving a Hurley @hurley prize pack

These two have set the bar very high in the first week of this video challenge.

Tube of the week

The public have spoken and voted for our best tube contender after our week 1 post where we had 3 great tube rides to consider from Kade Martin, 8yr old Rocco Rigliaco and 12 yr old Hunter Andersson.

While everyone agreed they were all fantastic tube rides the crowd favourite was overwhelmingly video 3 Hunter Andersson @hunter_andersson no hands backhand pit from Boiling Point Noosa Heads Australia.

We’re sending Hunter a prize pack from our friends @amazonpower

Our first MALDIVIAN entry 🇲🇻

 Meet 11yr old @kayan_zaki ripping on @kandooma_right on the island of @holidayinnresortmaldives.

The ocean is an integral part of Maldivian life, and we love watching the Maldivian people find expression & joy from being with the ocean!

Can’t wait to watch Zaki continue to grow & ride these beautiful waves!

Our family has stayed at Kandooma many times over the years and know how epic it is for family holidays & waves! We’re going to revisit the concept of holding a physical Blast Off event there in the near future…. keep your eyes peeled! 

@kayan_zaki a @spyoptic pack will be making it’s way to you!!

These kids brought the stoke!

Newly turned 5yr old Austin Reynolds (but here he is 4) is ripping!!

He’s already showing an amazing understanding of technique and style and Austin made us all smile.

Thank you @raddad.adventure for being a part of the Blast Off community.

Leader in the Peoples Choice category after week 1 with 44 votes is 4 yr old Mobi Burrows from Sydney Australia for his video tandem surfing with his dad Jake.

The spirit of Blast Off has always been about STOKE & PROGRESSION…. That spirit seems to be alive & well in this moment of true Stoke for Mobi and Jake.

THIS is what Blast Off is all about!!

We’ve had 200+ votes for people choice, & voting is open until the end of the event window. So grommies, get out there, get filming (thanks Mum/Dad/caregiver), submit your clip, & get sharing!!
