SOUTHEAST/NORTH SURFERS SHRED NEW SMYRNA BEACH AT EVENT #4

NSSA SOUTHEAST/NORTH CONFERENCE

OPEN AND EXPLORER EVENT #3

NEW SMYRNA BEACH, FLORIDA

NOVEMBER 10, 2012

By: Linda Johnston

 

New Smyrna Beach Inlet played host to the fourth stop of the 2012-13 Southeast/North Open and Explorer Season on December 1st. Competitors were greeted with another beautiful day and the Inlet delivered contestable 3-4 foot choppy surf.  Yet again, the contest saw a terrific turnout of competitors. Reigning East Coast Champion Corey Howell was on his game, pulling out all the stops in a commanding triumphant performance in four divisions. Corey won the Open Mens, Explorer Mens, Explorer Juniors and also surfed for his Brevard Community College team taking the win in the College Mens. Robbie McCormick was tearing up the chunky conditions scoring an impressive three victories. He triumphed in his regular age category Open Boys and Explorer Menehuenes and then stepped it up a notch posting a huge victory in the upper age bracket Open Juniors division. Robbie also took runner up in the Explorer Boys final which was won by Chase Stevens. In the Open Mini Grom division, Southeast/North newcomer Evan Tyson was charging waves over his head taking an outstanding win. In the Super Groms, Kai Delorenzo was the winner.  Fisher Grant surfed smooth and polished in the bumpy conditions to win the Open Longboard. The girls battled the choppy, challenging surf with Emory McClary taking her first win in the Explorer Girls Division while Molly Kirk walked away with the victory in Open Girls.  Reigning East Coast Champion Austin Piper clinched her second win of the season in the Open Womens while Jazmine Dean doubled up sealing wins in the Explorer Womens and Womens Longboard divisions. And it was Mr. Energizer Charlie Hajak that took yet another win in the Super Seniors. 

 

Thank you to all the NSSA staff and competitors for another great event and we look forward bringing in the new year at New Smyrna Beach Inlet for Open and Explorer event #5 on January 6, 2013. Be sure to check the hotline for exact location. Happy Holidays from all of us at the NSSA Southeast/North Conference!
