On Sunday, February 4, 2007, 34 members and friends showed up for the first Intraclub of 2007. Twenty-nine individuals surfed and 5 others earned points by helping with the judging, spotting, photography and set-up.
The waves were clean with long walls in both directions. We utilized the peak in front of Taco Bell and the next peak north even with the middle of the parking lot. It was very crowded but we managed to complete the contest. It was sunny and mild. The water was in the mid-50’s.
In the first heat Jim Vreeland beat out (in order) Thwen, Alp, Kyle, Beth and newcomer Scottie Sweet. In a hotly contested second heat Shawn King edged out Matt Hertzberg. Finishing 3rd to 6th were Chris Duran, Robert Barnhill, Tim Cissna and Karen Cochran.
In the third heat Stephanie Phillips was in the right spot at the right time, getting all her waves and running away with the heat. Hugh Gurin, Bob Livingston, Izzy Szczepaniak, Krista Howell and Glenn Stenstrom finished behind Steph.
Jim Holt and Michelle Blight put on a show tearing up the lefts, with Jim squeaking out the win. Behind them, in order, were Jordan Wright, Robyn King, Mike Brown and Rick Loeper.
In the last heat of the first round Mitch Breaus was the winner. Leo Bersamina finished second with Asi Ghiassi, Lisa Ryner and Lena Warren finishing 3rd through 5th.
In the second round the heat you surf in is determined by your finish in the first round. All the first place finishers surf together, the second place finishers surf together, etc.
In Heat 6, the first heat of the second round Beth O’Rourke blew away everyone in the heat riding the lefts liked she owned them. Izzy took first in Heat 7 with Robyn King a close second. Robert Barnhill battled with Asi in Heat 8 with Asi winning the heat with a great last wave. The youngsters put on a show in heat 9, but at the end Chris Duran beat Matt Hertzberg.
The final heat of the day pitted all the first place winners from the first round. Wave after wave the contestants shredded. In the closest finish that I can remember the first 4 spots were separated by 5 points. Mitch Breaus won by one point over Jim Vreeland, who finished one point ahead of Jimmy Holt. Shawn King finished 2 points behind Jimmy. Fining 5th in the heat was Stephanie Phillips.
Surfers earn points in each round based on where they finish. Non-contestants who assist with the contest also get points. Intraclub points are earned throughout the year and awards are given out at the year-end party to the top finishers in the Mens, Jr. Mens, Womens and Jr. Womens division. The next contest is on March 4 th at 08:00. The Contest site will be determined that morning. Meet in the parking lot and get ready to have lots of fun.
