Watch the finals of the OC Beach Classic 2014 between the Boracay Dragons and the host team Humiliswag. I have played with both of these teams in the past and was amazing to see such a competitive and spirited game between players of different cultures. It also blew my mind to see the Dragons on my home beach in OC, after I met them and played their host tournament on Boracay Island last March. The Dragons are the best club team in the Philippines and are preparing for World Championships of Beach Ultimate next year in Dubai.
The Humiliswag bros are some of my Medicine Men (club) and DC Breeze (professional) teammates from the Baltimore area. We are a team committed to playing high level beach ultimate and are also preparing for the Inaugural USA Ultimate Beach Nationals next year in Virginia Beach. Most of the girls are from Boston’s top women’s club team Brute Squad. They joined both Humiliswag and the Dragons for this tournament. The ladies do not get much recognition in this because the announcer did not know all their names, but they played phenomenal.
Humiliswag: Molly Hallweaver, Elana Schwam, Courtney Kiesow from Boston Brute Squad
Dragons: Shira Klane, Laura Bitterman of Boston Brute Squad. Steph Wong of Boston Lions (Mixed), and Tara Parvus original Dragon.
A special thanks to Colby Clarkson of 8-Bit Heroes for the funny and professional commentary, and for Humiliswag’s Chuck Cleary for filming and editing.
