Saddleback’s Jeremy Carter was ripping as well, but came up short on his second scoring wave. Rounding out the final was Austin Finley from Cal State Channel Islands in third, Jack Boyes from Point Loma in fourth, Austin Ganz from UC Santa Barbara in fifth and Mike Ciaramella from UC San Diego in sixth. Shaw Kobayashi from Saddleback Red team placed 17th in this event and will claim the 2014 College Men’s conference title.

THE LONGBOARDERS PUT ON A SHOW DESPITE THE CHALLENGING HB CONDITIONS!

 

The College Longboarders were flaring up in the final. Zach Hines from University of San Diego threw down an 8.5 midway through the heat which sealed the win for him. Alex Greene from Cal State Channel Islands also threw down a good 8 point ride but couldn’t find a high scoring backup wave and placed second. Casey Powell from USC placed third followed by Eric Marin from UCLA in forth, Joey Wangsness from Point Loma in fifth and Dane Peterson from UCSD in sixth.  With Joey Wangsness’ fifth place finish, he will be crowned the overall College Longboard Champion for the 2014 season.
