SCSSL Middle School Competition at Manresa State Beach

The third Middle School contest of the Santa Cruz Scholastic Surf League took place this past Saturday, November 23rd. The contest had to be moved from the Hook to Manresa State Beach of Santa Cruz due to very small surf in the 1 to 2 foot range. Cunha surfed against Mission Hills, the top rated school in the league, and was defeated in the team round by a score of 77 to 49. Considering the terrible conditions, not Half Moon Bay surfers prefer type of surf, the Cunha competitors surfed very well.

All was not lost as three Cunha team riders advanced all the way to the finals:

Emma Stone surfed her way to the finals in two division and took 2nd place in Girl's longboard and Girl's shortboard. Ella Catalano-Dockins took 5th place in Girl's shortboard while Cunha's very own Clay Johnson took 4th place in Boy's Longboard.

Fun was had by all the competitors as we look forward to our next contest on January 19th, 2014 at the Hook in Santa Cruz.
