Summer 2016 Recap

Aug 23, 2016 | Events

June started with Cabo, 6,000 QS and Junior Pro. Which it went pretty great, but wished I had won the Junior Pro. And I had a really good heat with Nicky VanDyke in the quarters.
Result: Junior Pro- 2nd, WQS 6000- 9th
Then back to Cali for the Voclom Global Champs at Lowers. Surfed good and rivaled with my friend Brisa in the final. Got 2nd.
Next, was Surfing America Championships also at Lowers. Stoked to have had Freddy P in my corner. I got sick, but battled thru it, and made the final. Tough to beat Caroline Marks. Got 2nd to Caroline. Three 2nds in a row!!! Wish I had a Win in there somewhere!
Off to NSSA Nationals at Huntington Beach. First, the explorer womens. Long road to the final, made finals.  6 man, 15 minutes heats. Got 5th. I think after Cabo and all the Lowers comps, my performance and attitude level was a bit affected and down.
Next was NSSA Open Women. Made 2 heats, then went down in the quarters. Bad heat, everything went wrong. Back to Hawaii to regroup. A week later, back to Supergirl Pro in Oceanside. I was fired up. Seeded in Rd 3. Was surfing good, but lost on the first heat by .30
Got a chance to hang out and surf/photo shoot with the other Roxy Girls the next few days.  Now back in Hawaii, small regional comp at my local spot. 1st place. More NSSA comps here at home, Hawaii Surf Team training, then QS Azores and ISA Portugal Junior Worlds in September.
