The Laguna Beach High School surf team dominated Newport Harbor High School in their first league event Thursday, Sept. 22, at Thalia Street beach.
Laguna’s young, impressive team includes freshman twins Sam and Kiko Nelsen, who have been on fire in each of their events so far.
Sam opened the day with an excellent ride that allowed him multiple hits and a nice tail slide while his team mates Jake Levin and Travis Booth finished in second and third, according to a report by coaches.
In another brother team, Noah North took first and Jett a third. Short board ripper Dante Madrigal again doubled up taking a second in short board, while once again coming up with the long board win. Close behind was Jameson Roller in long board who finished second.
Also impressive in short board was Liam McCue, who ripped his way to a win. Other top finishers securing seconds were Jeremy Shutts and Holdan Geary, while Trey Lockhart took a third.
On the girls short board team, Kayla Coscino snagged a number of excellent rides to place first. Kalohe Danbara took second and Claire Kelly third. Anika Pitz came up with a big long board win while Grace Wellsfry did well with a fourth.
In boys body board, Laguna saw solid performances by Todd Vought who took second followed by Hunter Johnson in third and Spencer Davis in fourth.
