Montauk native Quincy Davis, 18, won the women’s champion title at the Corona Extra Pro Surf Circuit contest in Rincon, Puerto Rico, taking home the trophy in her division for the third year in a row.
Ms. Davis earned $5,000 for the top prize. She graduated from East Hampton High School in June 2013, after learning on the surf circuit with help from tutor Brittany Thompson. Like many local surfers, she splits her time between Rincon and Montauk.
As a child watching her parents, Paul and Paulette Davis, and her older brother, Tyler Davis, surf, Ms. Davis grew restless and at age 7, she was brought into the family pastime and has been surfing ever since. A young newcomer on the professional circuit, she is training hard in hopes of qualifying for the Women’s World Championship Tour this year.
