Red Bull Riders Cup Serves To Fuel SCHS’ Fire

dane1

The Orange County Regional Championships, the seventh stop of the 2009 Red Bull Riders Cup season, took place this week in sunny, albeit “small” conditions. This leg saw Orange County’s best high school surfers battle it out in a series of close games. Participating high schools included San Clemente High, Newport Harbor High, Edison High, and Huntington Beach High.

In 1- to 2-foot surf at best, the SCHS team fought fiercely in some of the worst conditions they’ve had to compete in the entire year. Surfing against the local favorites of Huntington Beach, the SCHS team was plagued with high tides and drastic lulls. The event did see some highlights for the team as Dane and Patrick Gudauskas, WQS warriors and SCHS alumni, came down to root the team on and make sure the boys were focused. Dane gave an incredible speech to the team leading into the third quarter of the game.

Swell’s most colorful (in terms of nail color and personality) surfer is embarking on an East Coast escapade; surfing, stylin’, and living in a white van down by the river (or wherever he can get away with really). Swell sent him off today with a sparkly banner, clean and freshly stickered van, and two economy-sized boxes of Cheez-Its. 

Read on for more pics and good stuff. (more…)

Their trophy case must be getting pretty crowded. This past weekend the SCHS surf team took home their second state title of the season with big wins at the Interscholastic Surfing Federation championships in Oceanside. Both the  boys shortboard team and bodyboard team won their events, while the boys longboard team and girls shortboard teams were runners-up in their divisions.

The team will compete again this weekend in Huntington Beach at a regional qualifier of the Red Bull Riders Cup, followed by the year-end showdown for the NSSA’s national team title on June 17-20 at Salt Creek in Dana Point.

SCHS Surf Team Spotlight: Adam Goldstone

“I will kill anyone for a trip to Indonesia.”
- Adam Goldstone, SCHS Varsity Team Surfer

Those nine very telling words sum up Adam Goldstone to his core: He is a viscous murder and he really digs the scene in Southeast Asia. Need we say more?
Okay fine, here are some other interesting facts: When he’s not busy performing heinous acts of violence around San Clemente, he can be found working at the Toes on the Nose surf shop or eating a breakfast burrito.
