Sunday was a day of firsts for the 2010 Victoria Skimboards World Championships of Skimboarding.
A pair of Dana Point residents and Victoria Skimboards riders, Morgan Just and Anna Prophet, won the Men's and Women's Pro titles, respectively at Aliso Beach. It was the first Women's Pro held in the competition that focused on its first live web broadcast in its 34-year history.
While Prophet became the first Women's Pro winner — she won the Women's Amateur division last year, Just earned the Men's Pro title for the very first time.
Just, 24, was happy to get the title after so many years of near misses.
"I've gotten second-place so many times before, that I was expecting to get second again," said Just who said he first entered the world championships 14 years ago, the same amount of years he's been a rider with Victoria Skimboards.
He emerged victorious from a Men's Pro finals field that included runner-up and perennial division winner Bill Bryan, third-place Brandon Sears and fourth-place Paulo Prietto.
