The day before Independence Day, The Hawaiian flag blew in full mast. It was the final day of week-long ripping at the NSSA Nationals at HB Pier. Hawaii’s Barron Mamiya took out Newport’s hottest student Parker Kohn in the Open Men’s final; Hawaii’s Summer Macedo beat Carlsbad’s Alyssa Spencer in the Open Women’s.

Kelly Slater summed the week up on Instagram, “….it’s good to see all the groms ripping at the NSSA Nationals — new crop shredding.”

Longtime NSSA Director Janice Aragon said: “This year’s Nationals was as good as it gets witnessing so many incredible performances in pumping surf conditions. HB delivered, as solid waves poured through southside for the entire eight-day marathon and the waves were firing on finals day.

“It was a Hawaiian sweep for the marquee National titles in the Open Mens and Open Womens. The Hawaiian powerhouse Barron Mamiya gave a performance reminiscent of the 1996 Nationals when Andy Irons powered his way to the Open Mens title. Barron’s precise, seamless and potent backhand attack on the Pier Bowl earned him the prestigious National Open Mens title and also the AI Award for outstanding performer.

“In the Open Women’s, Summer Macedo achieved her dream of the premier title after years of competing at the Nationals. She was clearly on a mission from the opening round, owning southside and throwing buckets on the Pier Bowl heat after heat.

“And the performer of the event had to be Caroline Marks as she put on a beyond exceptional surfing display for the record books continuing to stamp her mark on the sport. This year she added four more titles to her resume passing Bobby Martinez (seven titles) and tying Kolohe Andino’s nine-title mark. Carissa Moore holds the record with 11. This year Caroline won High School Womens, Explorer Womens, Explorer Girls and Open Girls. She smashed it on southside, just seemingly having so much fun and using southside’s pier bowl as her own personal skate park.

“It was incredible to watch her win heat after heat. She took every heat win she surfed in at the Nationals except the Open Womens woman-on-woman quarterfinals where she was edged out by Alyssa Spencer. Wow, Caroline was just so impressive with her focus, her determination, her ability and her will to win! She’s got a huge future. A true champion.”
