Amphitheater setting hosts huge surf on final day of comp

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 14 January, 2014 - While Saturday hosted clean head-high surf, Sunday bombed ten foot sets through the lineup at Steamer Lane for the annual Surfing America Prime event.

With conditions testing the young competitors it was local Ben Coffey who excelled in the heavy surf, claiming a win in the Under 18 boys division. The Under 14 boys went to town in the lined up rights with Crosby Colapinto of San Clemente edging out NSSA standout Eithan Osborne for the win.

In the girls division Meah Collins - daughter of Richie Collins who won the Coldwater Classic here 20 plus years ago - took the Under 16 prize while Steffi Kerson nailed the Girls Under 18 division.

All surfers in the event are under the microscope to perform well as results count as a factor in deciding next year's Surfing America PacSun team. See below for full results.
