Meet The Most Recommended Stab High Aerialist, Hector Santamaria
“I’m going to bring so much love into this pool.”
When we started our inception of Stab High, one thing we wanted to be sure of was inviting at least one individual who has the chance to win the event who doesn’t have a sponsor, but really should.
After plenty of research and recommendations, we fell on Hector Santamaria, “The elfi from the universe.”
When we spoke with Dane Reynolds, Chippa Wilson, Albee Layer, Josh Kerr and many more, an overwhelming amount of high profile aerial specialists recommended Mr. Santamaria. He’s been on our radar for some time, mostly through our Instagram feed doing strange flips on unlikely sections. Hector was on our original list of inclusion, but mysteriously vanished due to a few minor details that needed sorting.
Today, we are pleased to announce Hector’s inclusion in our surf event.
Stab High will take place September 22nd in Waco, Texas.
We hope to see you this Saturday in Texas. Come hang, have a few beers and/or cocktails and enjoy our afterparty featuring a live act by Poolside; and an after-after party with a slew of to-be-announced DJs.
In the word of Hector, “Chiiiii!”
