Middle School State Championship Results: SCHOLASTIC SURF SERIES MIDDLE SCHOO…

Middle School State Championship Results:




The Scholastic Surf Series a Division of the WSA completed its fourth year of competition Saturday & Sunday with the Middle School State Championships at Oceanside Harbor. Thirty (30) Middle School Teams from Santa Cruz to San Diego traveled to Oceanside to compete in some of the best
waves of the season in search of a State Championship Title. The weather and sand were hot with kids and parents hopping from tent to tent in search of some shade for those burning feet while out in the water the kids were burning up the epic waves with outstanding performances showing their progressive maneuvers. Middle school surfing has evolved into a hotbed of rising young talent taking their surfing to the Next Level and it was on display at the SSS State Championships. We wish to thank our sponsors for their support throughout the season and providing prizes and awards for the competitors at the event: Body Glove, Eco Water, Hoven Vision, Oceanside Longboard Surfing Club, Sima Corp., Sticky Bumps, SuperBrand Surfboards, The Wavehouse and the Western Surfing Assoc. (WSA). Awards were given for both Sportsmanship and Scholastic Surfer. Photos from the event can be seen on www.seasister.com.
