Surfer of the Week - 9/9/2019

BRAYDEN BURCH

Age: 14
Hometown: San Clemente, California
School: San Clemente High School; 9th grade
Sponsors: O'Neill, Lost Surfboards, I-Sea Sunglasses
Equipment: Lost Surfboards Pocket Rocket 5'11.5 X 18.75 X 2.28 X 27.0
Claim to Fame: The Southwest Open held it’s first event of the 2019/20 season at Huntington Beach Pier in solid head high conditions showcasing the top youth surfers on the west coast. Because it is the season opener, the event sets the tone for the year, so Brayden opened his season in the best possible manner taking out the victory in the stacked Juniors division. “It felt amazing to win my first event in Open Juniors,” Brayden said. “I haven't won a contest in a while so it felt really good.” The 14-year-old San Clemente High School freshman put a big feather in his cap winning the Middle School Boys division at the 2019 National Interscholastics, but it was an Open Season win that had eluded him since his 12 & under days. With his lifelong coach, which happens to be his Dad by his side, Brayden went straight to work finding his rhythm on southside’s infamous sandbars. He advanced through heat after heat in a mixed bag of wave conditions that HB notoriously can throw at you. He surfed his best heat when it mattered in the final posting a 14.33 total. “The mornings were pumping,” he said. “But conditions were tough in the evenings, super windy and choppy. In the final my Dad told me to sit on the lefts and as it turns out those were the heat winning waves.” The win will put Brayden at number one in the rankings, a position that he has worked long and hard for. “It took a lot of time and training to get me here!”. Favorite thing about HB Pier: The reform after the pumping outside. Age you started surfing: I started surfing when I was 5. My Dad taught me. Local spot: Lowers. Surf crew: Dax, Luke, Dane, Hayden, Tyrone, and many more surfers from San Clemente. Best thing about living in San Clemente: The surfing community and positivity all around town. Favorite surfers: Jordy Smith because he does huge carves and has so much power. Kolohe Andino because he’s one of the best surfers to come from San Clemente. Fantasy Superpower: The power to teleport. Dream wave: J-Bay. Something people don’t know about you: I like to travel a lot. If you could surf like anybody in the world who would it be: Jordy Smith because his turns and airs are insane! Barrels or Airs: Barrels. Who has pushed your surfing? My Dad because he has me surfing almost every day and he trains and coaches with me in and out of the water. Goals: To keep the ball rolling and make more finals and maybe win a couple more. Thank yous: My sponsors and my friends and family for supporting me.
