Surfing American Prime draws talent from all over the United States 

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 11 October, 2014 - Surfing America Prime scored again at Church as West Coast event number two coincided with a beautiful southern hemisphere swell and perfect Fall weather.  The surf was 4 to 6 feet with sets well overhead for most of the surfers!  The Prime series brings together the best under 18 year old surfers from NSSA and WSA on the West Coast with ASP/ISA judges and computer scoring.  The kids took full advantage of the epic conditions.

Highlights included Ventura’s Sean Woods taking his 1st Prime victory in the Boys U16 division and Nick Marshall’s full rotation air with hands behind the back “no claim” claim!  Nick Marshall was a double finalist – 1st in Boys U14 and 3rd in Boys U16.  Cole Houshmand also doubled up with a 2nd place in both Boys U16 and Boys U18 along with Caroline Marks 1st in Girls U16 and 3rd in Girls U18 (she’s 12!)

“I love it when the surf is awesome for a contest.  So great to watch the kids cut loose in the great conditions!” said Greg Cruse, Surfing America Executive Director.
