Santa Monica SSS Middle School Event Results

Sunday in Santa Monica dawned a fun day of surfing for the Scholastic Surfing Series final event of the Channel Season. As I crested the hill on Pico and Ocean, I could see glassy fun waves that were breaking both left and right. The surf was 2-to 3-foot face and remained fun all contest.

With this being the final event of the season there were a lot of competitors fighting for the ratings lead and for team points.

A few highlights of the event had to be Vinny Leonelli surfing really fast and on rail in every shortboard heat. He won all of them including the final.

In the Men and Women’s Longboard divisions there was some classic nose rides thrown down by Jackson O’Connor, Trae Candy, Trevor Robbins and eventual winner Evan Trauntvein. The ladies did not let the guys out do them as Isabell Radis posted the highest score of the day, a 9.3 average but she came up just short on a countback to Frankie Seely.

Look forward to seeing everyone at the State Championships in April. — Matt Malone
