On Tuesday the Surf Team League Finals consisting of Laguna Beach, San Clemente, Dana Hills and Newport Harbor were held at Upper Trestles for our Girls Shortboard, Girls Longboard, Boys Longboard and Bodyboard.

The surf was tiny and there was question on whether or not we would run, but we did push on and the team gave it their all. Despite the surf being so small and air being freezing it was a pretty morning. The Bodyboarders kicked things off. We didn't get anyone in the Final, but Dante Madrigal came close to advancement coming off a season long injury to cover for Jack Dickerson who is now injured.

Next up was Girls Longboard, Marlee Grosher unfortunately just missed out, but Kira Hamilton was very strong in her first heat and went on to finish 6th overall. Our Girls Shortboard was well represented as well with a very well surfed first heat from Coco Putnam and a 5th overall Final finish for her, Laguna's top place for the day! Our Boys Longboard tried hard, but came up short this year. Today the Boys Shortboard was scheduled to compete, however the tiny surf made it impossible to run. We will be back next Tuesday to try again.
