Tar pits, Carpinteria – Feb 5, 2017

It was a cloudy day in Carpinteria, but the conditions were just right for the High School Division 2 SSS event LA to Santa Barbara. The waves were in the three to four foot range with a peeling left and right on a nice little sand bar. Arroyo Grande took ten spots in the finals and dominated the day! Aaron Terrasas (Arroyo Grande) was ripping all day and found himself first in the Boys Shortboard Final. The super stoked, Luke Holscher (Loyola), won the Mens Longbaord Final, and still had time to make it to his Super Bowl party. Riley Cabanero (Arroyo Grande) dominated both the Womens Shortboard and Womens Longboard finals! She was a double champion and was surfing great all day. For the second weekend in a row, Mason McElvain, (Westlake) took the victory for the Bodyboard final.
