NSSA NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS: THE RESULTS…

posted by / News / July 3, 2006

We saw fights. We saw flips. We saw fog. And we saw one diminutive female shatter a long-standing NSSA record when Carissa Moore not only pulled yet another triple crown and her third Open Women’s title in a row, she broke Bobby Martinez’s seven-national title count with nine (and presumably many more to go.) Yes, this year’s NSSA National Championships saw it all, and it came to a cymbal-clashing conclusion tonight at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott in Dana Point. We saw some tear-jerking triumphs, some heavy upsets and some obvious calls in tonight’s results, but at least no one forgot to thank Janice and Gayline, God, their parents and their sponsors. And we mean no one. Among the noteworthy victory speech-givers, 12-year-old Kolohe Andino walked away with two titles and found a way to end both his shout-outs with, “Shoots.” {{{Malibu}}}’s Dillon Perillo gave the West Coast another reason to cheer as he fended off yet another Hawaiian offensive in Open Juniors, Carissa Moore is well on her way to becoming the most accomplished NSSA surfer of all time and Hawaii’s Kekoa Cazimero, a longshot for the Open Men’s title, proved the favorites can be beaten. His polished backhand prevailed in the wave-starved final after Casey Brown – who had the field virtually comboed – got greedy and racked up a paddling interference. But as Cazimero said on the stage, “Casey is a champion. We’re all champions.”
