Ten teams of four surfers each from area high schools competed in the fun rippable swell on offer. But at the close of the Final, only one team could claim the honor of best San Diego area High School Surf Team and this year’s honor went to Point Loma High School.
In addition to the glory and bragging rights, the team took home Oakley iPad minis, OHSTC Futures Fins and Watermans Sunscreen for their efforts. Carlsbad High School took second, San Dieguito Academy took third and Santa Fe Christian High School claimed fourth.
