A big congratulations goes out to Chemistry team rider Caroline Marks who placed equal 3rd at this years Supergirl Pro in our beloved hometown of Oceanside California. The field was stacked with talent and Caroline took down some big names along the way. She now sits at 6th on the WQS rankings going into the back half of the year! Congratulations Caroline, let the good times roll.

Barron Mamiya took the prestigious Governors Cup this past weekend in Huntington Beach, Ca. He smoked the field in the finals dropping a 9.75 & 8.75 for a 18.5 total. This was the biggest contest of the year for NSSA and we can't be more proud of Barron taking down the title.
Not to be outdone, Caroline Marks won the Open Girls title (her 9th!) to tie Kolohe Andino's record of 9 national titles. Caroline still has 3 years left of NSSA so we can expect her to surpass a few big names along the way.
We want to say congratulations to both Caroline & Barron for all of their hard work during this contest season. We love building boards for these two kids and watching them shred.

Team rider Logan Landry on his go to board for surfing in Barbados...
"Traveling to Barbados, I like to ride a more high performance board as the waves generally have more power than the beach breaks I am surfing at home in Nova Scotia. I generally take a board with a few liters less than what I ride at home because I shed my wetsuit in the tropics. My dimensions on the R2 model in this photo are 5'11" x 18 5/8" x 2 5/16" with a volume of 26.7 liters, squash tail and Future fins."

1. Caroline Marks
Recent accomplishment: She won every single girls/womens division at the NSSA East Coast Championships, two years in a row
Why her: Caroline Marks is the biggest talent to come from the east coast since maybe the Hobgoods. She has amazing style and technique, power beyond her years, and an immaculate competitive record. While nationals is a huge deal in and of itself, something tells us it’s just another stepping stone in a career that will likely end with multiple World Titles.
