As the NSSA season continues it’s season in full throttle it was great to see the girls still going hard in the water. Samantha Sibley was again a competitor in the event and has been kind enough to contribute to our report.

Samantha says “It was a sunny, warm day at The NSSA Open surf contest. Long lefts were peeling off the jetty at the wedgy beach break Oceanside Harbor. Pristine conditions allowed the girls to show off their skills.”

“Steffi Kerson took the win in Open Womens” said Samantha .”The long lefts allowed this talented goofy footer to get a series of vertical snaps in the pocket pushing her up into the lead. I came in behind her in 2nd place was pushing myself with progressive maneuvers and fast carves. Tiare Tompson earned third and was surfing good all day, getting in some nice backside hits in the critical section of the wave. Malia Osterkamp ended up in the fourth spot, but earlier in the day she posted a near perfect heat, 19.26 out of 20! The competitors in the women’s division were absolutely ripping!”

Samantha didn’t want to miss out on taking home a first place and secured those crucial points in the Open Girls division by using her knowledge of the break and linking together some nice snaps and technical wraps into the white water.” She says of the final… “Tiare Tompson was a real threat she came in 2nd place and absolutely went to town on her backhand riding waves all the way down the beach. Alyssa Spencer took out 3rd place by whipping out strong cutbacks, and clean off-the-lips. Sydney Tisdale ended up in the fourth position taking the biggest waves of the day! All the girls surfed at such a high level for their young age.”
