The National Scholastic Surfing Association (NSSA) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to encourage and assist its members in their interest to learn and develop the fundamentals and skills of surfing competition while competing in structured and quality events. The NSSA promotes the qualities of discipline and competitive excellence while supporting the merits of academic achievement to young surfers. The NSSA strives to provide a fun surfing experience for all of its members.

The NSSA is one of the few national youth sports organizations that require its participants to maintain academic standards in order to compete. Since 1978, the NSSA program philosophy has been that athletics and scholastics go hand in hand. More than 80 NSSA events are run nationwide that culminate with the annual National Championships which is regarded as the highest profile youth surfing event in America.

Surfer of the Week - 9/13/2021

TANNER SANDVIG

Age: 11
Hometown: San Clemente, California
School: Shorecliffs Middle School: 5th grade. Favorite subject: Math
Sponsors: Rip Curl San Clemente, Channel Islands Surfboards, Futures Fins, Sticky Bumps, Famous, Surface Sunscreen, Waxtrak, Crepic
Equipment: 411" Channel Islands Fever model
Claim to Fame: In only his second full year of competing in the NSSA, Tanner has become one of the top up-and-coming stars in the sport. He had a breakout rookie season in 2019/20 where he became a standout in the Southwest Conference 10 & under divisions winning the season title in Explorer Super Groms and placing in the top 5 of the Open Mini Groms. It was a heck of an initial season for the young goofy-footer from the talent-rich breeding ground of San Clemente. Tanner was not only able to get his foot in the door of notoriously tough NSSA contests, he kicked that door wide open when he nailed his first Regional title at the 2020 West Coast Championships. So darn impressive. The championship victory made things clear that his potential was sky high. Tanners return to 2020/21 competition saw him take out the victories in both the Open and Explorer season openers. He went on to collect six total wins and lock up double season titles in Open Mini Groms and Explorer Super Groms. Tanner credits his coaches for developing him into a successful competitor and steadily progressing his skills and technique. I think I came back strong this year because of great coaching, he said. Erik Krammer and John Daniels have been coaching me. Erik is my main coach. I have been working with him for over two years and he has been beside me at most of the contests. John has been great at helping me with heat practice and technique. Tanner also surfs up into older age brackets which gives him extra practice while challenging him to elevate his game against the older kids. Surfing up gives me a chance to compete against kids who are already at the next level, he said. It is fun to try and bring my surfing up to their level during live heats. Of course, all of Tanners accomplishments thus far havent come without hard work. He maintains a strong work ethic and a great attitude to go along with it. In the postseason, he has set high goals for himself and will be focused on adding more championship triumphs to his growing list of achievements. More importantly he wants to enjoy surfing and competing with his peers. I want to win the Regionals and a National title--and still have fun with all of my friends! ## WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE CONTEST THIS SEASON? My favorite was the last NSSA contest in Ventura because I got my highest heat score of 18.17 and took the U12 Open Season Title. It was a good way to end the season before going to Regionals. AGE YOU STARTED SURFING: I started riding with my dad on his surfboard when I was 3 years old. He taught me how to surf and now I am 10 million times better than him. Ha! SURF CREW: Wesley Young, Harvey Nelson, Luke Carlson, Kai Thompson and the rest of the San Clemente groms. LOCAL SPOT: Trestles. WHAT IS THE BEST THING ABOUT LIVING IN SAN CLEMENTE? Having Trestles in my backyard. LOCAL HEROES: The Gudauskas brothers and their Positive Vibe Warriors because they surf really good and spread stoke everywhere they go. FAVORITE PRO SURFERS: Griffin Colapinto because he does sick blow tails, big airs and has a good rail game. FANTASY SUPERPOWER: To time travel so I could surf any spot before people got there. SOMETHING PEOPLE DO NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU: I have dyslexia. DREAM WAVE: A long barreling left. BARRELS OR AIRS: Barrels because they have a good view from inside. WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT SURFING NSSA CONTESTS? I love the priority in heats and best of all the live scoring announcing because it really helps! WHO HAS PUSHED YOUR SURFING THE MOST? Zal and Kona Costa because we have battled back and forth this year for season titles in two different age groups. THINGS YOU ARE WORKING ON? Progressive surfing, more power in my turns and trying to get away from safety surfing. GOALS FOR THIS YEAR: To try and win all three titles this year including the Season Title, Regional and National Title - and to have fun with all of the new friends I have met. THANK YOUS: To the NSSA for cheering me on, Erik Krammer and John Daniels for being awesome coaches - and a special thanks to my parents for always helping me.
