Jack Dickerson led the way with a fourth place finish overall in the bodyboard division at Oceanside Jetty in the Scholastic Surf Series event on Nov. 17.
In the girls’ longboard, Marlee Grosher was spectacular winning several of her heats along the way, but came up a bit skunked in the final and had to settle for sixth overall.
The left and right peaks at the start crumbled with a negative tide, which made things a lot more closed out and tougher by the day’s end, according to coach Alisa Cairns.
In boys’ short board, surfing strong was Tobie Grierson, Zach Levine, Cam Zuziak and Colton Bryant. In boys longboard, Liam Bryant and Erik Siegrist came up shy of advancement. In the girls short board, Coco Putnam surfed strong and advanced, but wasn’t feeling well and ended up going home prior to her individual heat. Along with Marlee in girls’ longboard, Cayla Henderson gave it her all on a borrowed board. Unfortunately her own longboard flew out of the truck and was destroyed on her way to the event.
