"This team has such a good vibe that it transfers directly to their surfing. Surfing styles range from smooth and fluid longboarding to a more aggressive and snappy approach with our short boarders," said assistant coach Mick Vollmer. "While our team is very competitive with a winning record of 2-0, they also seem to know how to keep things light and are always having a good time. The coaches are impressed with the team and the level in which they are competing -and of course, their all-around stoke!”

The Tartans return to the water to continue the Scholastic Surf Series on Sunday, Feb. 9, at the San Clemente Pier. Go Tartans!
