South Bay Scholastic Surfing Association Kickoff Surf Contest in Hermosa Beach

The South Bay Scholastic Surfing Association’s Annual Kick-Off Classic commenced on the south side of the Hermosa Beach Pier last Saturday, bringing out all of the top high school surfers in the area. The surf stayed in the two to three foot range with morning jazzy and glassy conditions.

“It was a fun day that was very contestable,” said Chris Wells, head judge. “With the changing of the tides, the surf got a  bit dumpy by noon and by the finals onshore — making it a challenge.”
