Checking in with Swell’s local San Clemente High School Surf Team…
“This past week the SCHS surf team competed in the League Individuals against Newport Harbor, Laguna and Dana Hills. The league individuals is rich with tradition and many of the top pros in the area have put there names on the trophy.
The event started out slow with waist high waves down at Upper Trestles. Tuesday saw the Longboarders, bodyboarders, Girl’s shortboard and Girl’s longboard competing. San Clemente surfers won 3 of the 4 divisions. Hallie Rohr won the girl’s longboard, Eli Gillis won the boy’s longboard and Erik Buell won the bodyboard division. Wednesday morning so a little increase in swell and all the boy’s shortboarders down there to put there name on the trophy. 9 surfers competed for San Clemente, we got 6 surfers into the semi’s and 3 surfers into the final. The final was very close and competitive but in the end it was the SCHS freshman Trevor Thorton taking the win and joining some pretty prestigious company.”
