Channel Section’s Final Event

The last event of the Scholastic Surf Series Channel Section was held April 10th at C-st in Ventura in 2- to 4-foot surf.

Stand out surfers in the Boys Shortboard were: Parker Waugh, who scored a 9.5 doing backhad lacerating turns, Vinny Leonelli, who just seemed to be on every good wave, and Riley Garrison. In the Girls Shortboard, Arianna Wallis surfed really well to take the win. In the Men’s Longboard, Kyle Woods and Trevor Robbins were the boys to watch. The competitors who could read C-Street’s tricky pointbreak waves and execute solid cross-steeping, as well as toss their board into the lip prevailed. Emy Yates won the Women’s Longboard and she did it with style to spare. Bodyboard came down to two competitors with different styles: Chris Finck employed the stand-up and spin to win style and ended in 2nd while a more traditional approach by Tate Larrick took the win. Finck was so stoked with his 2nd place finish that he said he couldn’t wait for State’s.

This event marks the last of the season for our area, and the Channel Section crew cannot wait for next season. We had great support from our sponsors; SIMA, SUPER brand boards, Wave House, Surf Happens, Body Glove, Ransom Wax, and Vita-Water.
