Biggest congrats to Tribe Member Keely Andrew crowned 2016 champion of The World Surf League (WSL) Women’s Qualifying Series (QS) Copa El Salvador Impresionante QS6000 presented by Body Glove.

“Last year kind of stung a bit so I came back here really wanting to get the win and I’m so stoked to pull that off,” Andrew said. “This is massive for me. I need to get points for re-qualifying since I’m sitting 15th on the CT and have to get good QS results. Alessa is an incredible surfer and an amazing person, I watched her drop those huge scores in the Semifinal so that onshore win played to my advantage a bit. I was able to read the wave with the bumps coming in it and fortunately got two scores.”

“I try to stay loose in the water, you don’t want to get stuck waiting, especially when conditions start getting slow like they did,” Andrew added. “I had a good strategy set and I’m stoked it all fell into place. I’m so fortunate to have all the support of my family and can’t wait to see them when I get home.”
