Vans Pro 2016 in Virginia Beach - winner is Evan Geiselman

Surfing is a sport that has always been a popular sport and even more so with the dawn of the internet. In the Vans Pro 2016, Evan Geiselman became the champion. Evan impressed the judges by catching 11 waves. He made a strong comeback after a near death experience. He almost drowned at Pipeline in the Vans Pro 2015.

In the accident, Geiselman suffered a three-wave hold-down after he was pulled down into a pipe barrel. The incident on December 6, 2015 had the surfing world saying prayers for the 23-year-old surfer from New Smyrna Beach, Florida.

Geiselman started surfing at the age of seven, and the near death experience could not keep him down. In Vans Pro 2016, Geiselman was victorious over two former champions: Pat Gudauskas and Michael Dunphy. The win was a welcome relief after the tumultuous time he had into getting in shape for a challenge like the Vans Pro Surf Tournament.

Brother to the pro surfer Eric Geiselman, Evan has won twelve East Coast championship titles. Surfing for 16 years since 2000, Evan has only become better with time. He has attracted sponsors from all over, including, Red Bull, Oakley, Dragon, Hurley, among others.

After the win, Evan Geiselman moved up to position six on the QS (Qualifying Series) and is upbeat as the tour heads on to the European leg. After the win, Geiselman will join other surfers from the Vans Pro Men’s QS3,000 on the European tour and it will be a tight race as to who will qualify for the 2017 Samsung Galaxy Men’s Championship Tour.
