“It was a total team effort with several of our surfers jumping into surf multiple divisions,” coaches Scott Finn and Alisa Cairns said. “Our two women surfed in shortboard and longboard with great success. During the team portion, Kayla Coscino scored a perfect 10 out of 10 in shortboard on a long right that she ripped from start to finish. She also did really well with big scores in longboard as well but wasn’t able to stay around for the individual competition. Freshman Cameron Taylor took over representing the women of Laguna and put in a super effort. She won the shortboard and took fourth in the longboard.”

In the mens shortboard and longboard, Kiko Nelsen and Christian Schenk did double duty, scoring team points. Kiko went on to the finals in both divisions in the individuals and ended up stealing the show in shortboard with the overall win. He also took third in longboard.

Dylan Zoller did nicely in the bodyboard and took third overall. Gavin Campbell also performed well, as did Holden Geary and Cooper Laws, who all helped with the team score points to win.
