It's easy to hold a grudge. It's just not so easy to hold the Smith Optics Garden State Grudge Match. This eighth annual New Jersey elite event is held "on call," for the nastiest Atlantic swell of October. This year, the Atlantic was strangely pacific, but the Grudge Match still went off.

21-year-old Zach Humphreys took the belt from three-time champ Sam Hammer, in Sam's own house. It may not have been massive black hole barrels, but it was still a slugfest.
