Summers Beach, Ventura – Jan 28, 2017

It was a hot sunny day in Ventura for the LA to Santa Barbara surfers. Waves were in the 3 to 4 foot range. With an almost 6 foot high tide at 8:00 am and not much beach left from the weeks of storm surf, we couldn’t start the day till 10:00. By 10:00 the tied had dropped and the waves were chest to head high and pealing on the new sand bars.  Getting down to the last couple events of the year all the teams were fired up especially Ventura taking first place in the overall team point with 173 points and right behind them with 162 points was Malibu. It was an intense Boys Shortboard final, but in the end it was the two Vodraska brothers who took the heat with Tanner Vodraska (Malibu) in first and Talan Vodraska (Malibu) in a close second. Dylan Nicodemus (Cabrillo) was showing off his great longboard skills and took the win in the Boys Longbard. Sophie Simon (Cabrillo) was ripping all day and found herself in first place in the Girls Shortboard. Malia Haller (SBJH), with some great foot work, took the win in the Girls Longboard division.  Last, but not least Charlie Richard took home the victory for the co-ed Bodybording final. Huge thanks to all of the parents and coaches for their help this weekend.
