Tia Blanco named OC Rising Star of the Year

Reef Ambassador Tia Blanco was recently awarded as the Orange County Register's OC Rising Star of the Year. Every year, a panel chooses four surfers in their community for the different awards. Coming off a third place at the recent ISA World Championships, Tia has been a standout among the Junior ranks and has made her mark as a force to be reckoned with. 

She, along with the other three surfers selected, will be recognized at the Surfers’ Hall of Fame ceremony, at 10 a.m. on Aug. 1 in front of Huntington Surf and Sport at Main and Pacific Coast Highway.
