Jamaica’s Icah Wilmot, Elim Beckford and Garren Pryce emerged winners of the Men’s Open, Women’s Open and Junior divisions respectively at the Makka Pro Surf Contest 2013, which was held at the Makka Surfing Beach in the Yallahs community of Southaven in St. Thomas on July 20 & 21. Icah is now a two-time winner of the contest, while Elim resurfaced from a two-year hiatus to pull off an unexpected victory. Promising young surfer Garren Pryce significantly improved his stock by securing the junior crown at the event.

Defending champions Jessie Heilman (US), Barbadian surfing sensation Chelsea Tuach and junior surfer Dane Mackie (Barbados) were not present to defend their titles, however, competitors from Australia, Trinidad & Tobago and the US squared off against some of Jamaica’s finest. Below are photo highlights from the event.
