With San Clemente surfers leading the way, Orange County produced champions in 13 of 25 divisions Sunday, May 14, at the West Coast Surfing Championships in Oceanside.

Petey Romaniuk of Huntington Beach won Western Surfing Association titles in two divisions, as did Pedro Todaro, a San Clemente surfer originally from Brazil.

Other West Coast titles went to San Clemente’s Reef Tsutsui, Nico Coli, Jeff Jessee, Chad Clifton, Ezra McPhillips, Tommy Coleman, Hana Catsimanes and to Lance Albright of Huntington Beach and Jeff Munson of Corona del Mar.

The two-day tournament benefited from consistent waist- to head-high waves. Season titles were based on points earned in monthly contests held since August, plus the championship event.

In the two-day contest itself, Orange County produced first-place winners in 14 of 25 divisions: Mark Austin of Orange, George Williams of Laguna Beach, Callan Emery of Laguna Niguel, Albright of Huntington Beach, Munson of Corona del Mar and San Clemente’s Coli, Jessee, Clifton, McPhillips, Todaro, Namor Cayres, Liam Murray, Kai Finn and Tommy Coleman.

Top-rated performers will earn invitations to the Surfing America USA Championships from June13-17 at Oceanside and June 19-22 at Lower Trestles, south of San Clemente.

On day one of the tournament, the Scholastic Surfing Series completed its own state championships on the same beach, with Shorecliffs Middle School of San Clemente taking the title. As that contest concluded at 11 a.m., the two-day WSA championships began.
