South Coast Surfing Series – #1

The first contest of the South Coast Surfing Series (SCSS) 2000 – 2001 season was held Sunday October 7 in Pacific Beach at the end of Pacific Beach Drive. The event was held in 2-4 foot surf under sunny skies. Available short board divisions were Groms 12 and under, Boys 14 and under, Jr Mens 17 and under, Mens Open, Masters 28 and up and the Tag Team Event, open to any competitor.

This is the SCSS’s ninth (9th) season of running contests at Southern California’s most dependable surf spots. This year the season will feature eight points rated events, with each surfer’s top six finishes counting toward his overall standing for the season. Once again the SCSS is U.S.S.F. sanctioned, allowing our top competitors to compete in the U.S. Amateur Championships, which will be held in Oceanside in July of 2001.
