The start to the U.S. Open of Surfing is just two weeks away, but the Nike 6.0 Pier Pressure, presented by Jack?s Surfboards, that wrapped up Monday at the Huntington Beach Pier might have served as a prelude of things to come in Surf City. And it could be another Aussie invasion. The four-man final of the Assn. of Surfing Professionals Nike 6.0 Pier Pressure had a distinct Australian flare, as three of the four finalists in the Pro Junior contest hailed from Down Under. The U.S. had one shot at the title after 15-year-old Andrew Doheny of Newport Beach worked his way into the final four.

With goalkeepers Alexia Roehr and Kelly Hyder combined to shut out four tournament opponents in as many games, the Huntington Beach AYSO Region 56's Under-12 girls Gold All-Star team last weekend captured the Costa Mesa Classic Championship. An Alex Dunn goal in the opening period proved to be the game-winner in the tournament final, where the Pier Pressure blanked Laguna Niguel of Region 41. The play of Hyder, Carley Bonchonsky, and Mary Horstmann - whose 10-minute defensive stand in the fourth quarter repeatedly turned back several Laguna Niguel attacks on goal, helped preserve the precarious one-goal lead.

Well, it was a long, fun summer. The weather was quite tasty, not as much June gloom for June and July. Pretty warm air temperatures this summer, which ended with a heat wave the last couple weeks that posted 80 degree temperatures for two weeks straight. The ocean was hot and cold, a couple weeks in the mid- to upper 60s to 70s, then dropping off to the upper 50s, pretty much all summer long. And we got a couple good size south swells when we needed them most. A recap of the surf action for the summer: It started at the NSSA National Championships at Trestles at the end of June and saw San Clemente’s Kolohe Andino go big, taking the men’s Governor’s Cup with all sorts of rad moves.
