A record number of longboarders from across the nation and Hawaii competed in 2-4’ connecting, glassy rights and lefts at the USA Surfing Longboard Championship in Oceanside this week.

It was the first time the Oceanside USA Surfing Longboard Championship was a qualifier for the International Surfing Association’s (ISA) World Longboard Championship event, which in turn qualifies longboarders for the Pan Am Games.

After several round robin heats, Brendan White (La Jolla, Calif.) and Cole Robbins (Santa Barbara, Calif.) finished first and second in Open Men, qualifying them to represent their country at the ISA World Longboard Championship. Avalon Gall (Los Angeles, Calif.) and Kaitlin Mikkelsen (Encinitas, Calif.) finished first and second in the Open Women division and will represent the U.S. in the ISA World Longboard Championship.
