Well, Malibu did not disappoint us at all, there were waves all weekend long. The surfing was incredible by the whole OLSC team! We were allowed to have only 12 competitive spots: 2 Junior men 17 and under, 2 junior women 17 and under, 4 Women 18+, and 4 Men 18-69. We were given two spots for legends who got to surf in a 30 minute expression session but were not scored. I think Jim Lattis had the best time in his Saturday expression session, he came into the beach all smiles!
At the end of a very competitive talent packed contest OLSC had four surfers in the finals.
Joey Tebelman—4th place Men 18-69
Jack Van Wagoner—4th place Jr men 17 and under
Makala Smith—1st place Women 18+
Kasie Perkins—3rd place Women 18+
Steve Newton and Haylie Frasco both made it to the Semi-Finals and put on a great performance. From the 6 person Semi-finals only 2 surfers were allowed to go on to the 4 person finals. Kasie Perkins won every heat all weekend until the finals—she and Makala were on absolute fire all weekend!! Brooke and Jack Ochoa surfed well in the Junior divisions! Jerry Swearingen and Michael Takayama both were killing it, so fun to see everyone get some great waves!!! Thank you to Kaila Patterson for filling the last women’s spot for us! Nice to have you back surfing with OLSC.
