Special recognition goes to Emma Stone who scored a very rare double win for the season in BOTH women’s shortboard and longboard. Emma has been one of our most consistent competitors since she joined the team three years ago and has a nose for the podium. Also, we have three graduating seniors: Team Captain Nate Feix, Ryan Bair and Mitchell King, who we will miss sorely as they move on to epic new adventures.
Scholastic Surf Series State Championships:
An inspired performance by our individual competitors at States in Oceanside on April 15 saw the majority advance out of the first round, several quarter finalists, four semi-finalists and one finalist. A small combo swell at the Harbor Jetties offered clean high tide conditions in the morning, followed by the usual low tide, onshore chaos by the late afternoon. https://surfsss.
