Oceanside CA—More than 100 of the best under 18 surfers on the West Coast will be back in jerseys competing at Oceanside Harbor South Jetty this weekend for the second stop of the Toyota USA Surfing West Coast Prime Series. Heats will run from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm Saturday and Sunday, followed by trophy presentations. You can follow all the action on Stact App. And get more information about the schedule here.
The Prime Series is the highest level of junior amateur competition in the nation, taking on extra significance as surfing makes its Olympic debut this summer! Rankings and qualifying points will be built throughout the series for coveted invites to the national USA Surfing Championship at Lower Trestles, Calif. in June. See rankings here.
Surfline is calling for three to four feet wave conditions on Saturday and two to three-plus for Sunday.
Several local surfers made the podium in the first event in Huntington Beach and will be looking to defend or better their positions at their home break.
Oceanside’s Caitlin Simmers, Lucas Owston are power surfers to watch. Carlsbad’s Alyssa Spencer is preparing for more WSL QS and potentially CT events this year. Also look for strong performances from Encinitas rippers Kyan Yang, Syd Ott, Cole McCaffray, and Greyson Grant
