With only two competitions left this season, the Warrior Surf Team had the benefit of competing right here at home in familiar Carlsbad waters in front of our Army and Navy Academy.
Not only was the event smoothly executed by the Scholastic Surf Series, supervised by Craig Matthews, and expertly staffed under the watchful eyes of our very own lifeguards, everyone in attendance witnessed some of the best breaking waves of the year!
The Army and Navy Academy Surf Team hit the waves again, this time in La Jolla on Sunday, Jan 11th. It rained most of the day and the air was chilly with medium to small sets of waves crumbling over the medium 2 ½’ – 3’ tide range.
A somewhat small and shallow day with lengthy intervals allowed the surfers time to pick out the tricky shoulders, with an occasional well-formed swell that you had to be in the right place for in order to score well.
The Surf Team started winter competition last Sunday, November 23 at San Fernando Place. It was a beautiful morning for competition, though the wind picked up early and the tide was not in total favor until about 11:00 am.
We’re looking forward to the next contest and showing up with a full force committed team along with these two surfers that represented us very well for the day!
