2015 National Scholastic Surfing Assoc. West Coast Championships Day One.

Jordan Collins

Huntington Beach, CA May 14th, 2015. With a quote from Janice Aragon, National Director “It seems to never fail that every May when the West Coast Championships are scheduled we have a good size swell.” As if on cue day one starts with a peaking Southern Hemisphere swell pushing six to eight feet on the faces. Unfortunately we still have a lingering south west wind which is giving the surface a slight bumpy texture. With partly sunny skies and a ¬†threatening storm from the North, the competition is on. Since 1978 the NSSA as promoted competitive excellence with maintaining academic standards. With conferences in Hawaii, East Coast, and the Caribbean, more that 80 events are held nation wide with the culmination of the annual National Championships being held at Salt Creek Beach, Dana Point, CA, and Huntington Beach Pier, Huntington Beach, CA June 26 – July 3. Starting today with Explorer Mens, Menehune, Juniors, Women, Boys, Super Groms, and Girls the competitions are off to a fast pace. With twenty minute heats and a pumping south swell some of the competitors were having a difficult time lining up and catching the larger set waves that add to the overall scoring of each ride. The latest surf report has the swell peaking this afternoon with a gradual decline over the next three days. Not to bad for the kids and the staff to have another stellar event with decent surf.
