SOUTHEAST/NORTH CONFERENCE KICKS OFF THE 2012-13 SEASON AT NEW SMYRNA!

NSSA SOUTHEAST/NORTH CONFERENCE

OPEN AND EXPLORER EVENT #1

NEW SMYRNA BEACH, FLORIDA

SEPTEMBER 8, 2012

By: Linda Johnston

 

The NSSA Southeast/North Conference was blessed with the hurricane swell providing great waves and beautiful weather for the 2012-13 season opener at New Smyrna Beach Inlet. We had two double winners for the day with Noah Schweizer getting the highest heat score of the day in his Explorer Juniors heat posting an excellent two-wave combined total of 16.0. Noah also came out strong in the prestigious Open Mens division taking the victory. The other double winner of the event was Robbie McCormick who won both the Open Boys and Explorer Menehuene divisions. Evan Brownell, who was our 2012 conference champion, is looking solid again taking 1st place in the Super Groms. Last season’s Most Improved Surfer Cobie Gittner came out swinging scoring a big victory in the Open Juniors. Matthew Glenn came out strong claiming the Explorer Boys win. Kaleb Kirschenbaum ripped some high scores in the Mini Grom final sealing his first victory of the season. 2012 NSSA East Coast Champion Corey Howell claimed victory in the Explorer Mens. Dylan Prestwood scored the only perfect 10 of the event taking command of the Explorer Longboard final. Newcomer Kara Brown took her first NSSA win in the Explorer Womens while another newbie Sydney Herring surfed impressively in her first NSSA contest claiming a big win in the prestigious Open Women’s category. Charlie Hajek pulled off his first win of the season taking the Super Seniors. And the Southeast/North Conference welcomes back Eric Worley who returned to NSSA competition after a 10 year absence and scored the Masters victory!

 

This was a great event we look forward seeing everyone back at New Smyrna Beach Inlet for Open and Explorer event #2 on October 6, 2012.
