The National Scholastic Surfing Association (NSSA) Nationals - the most elite amateur competitive surfing championships in the country – were hosted last month by Nike 6.0 at Sambazon’s home break, Trestles. The championships revealed the hottest up and coming surfers including winners Kolohe and Lakey. And like always, Sambazon was there to stoke out all the participants and keep the nutrition flowing. We just received a bunch of photos of the incredible competitors and onlookers that were fueling up on Sambazon açaí all weekend. Some names that come to mind: 2009 Champion Lakey Peterson, 2008 US Open Womans Champ Malia Manuel, FL ripper and aerial extraordinaire Eric Gisielman, New Team USA Coach Ian Carnies, Hawaii Legend and Sambazon ambassador Kahea Hart, 2009 NSSA National To Seed Tanner Hendrickson from Maui, and local 10 year old Griffin Colapinto in route to his 3rd place Open Mini Groms place at the 2009 NSSA Nationals.
