For the East Coast's best young competitors, the last few weeks have been grueling: nonstop competition in Southern California, first at the Surfing America USA Championships at Lower Trestles, then at the NSSA National Interscholastic Championships at Salt Creek, and now at Huntington Beach for the coveted Explorer and Open segments of the NSSA Nationals. Like always, our East Coast contenders have been right up in the mix, claiming two College titles (UNF's Emily Ruppert in College Women's and Flagler's Josh Richardson in College Longboard), two Explorers titles (Stevie Pittman in Explorer Boys and Cobie Gittner in Explorer Men's) and scalping countless Open heats as the contest grinds to a finish. This year, we dispatched ESM Photo Editor Nathan Adams into the fray as well so that we could get firsthand documentation of all the exciting action — and so far, he's been delivering in spades (along with all of our other contributors — thank you!).

The final two days of NSSA Nationals on Wednesday, July 2nd and Thursday, July 3rd will enjoy a live webcast so that we can keep up with our favorite Rightside representatives. But until then, let's get you caught up with all the action so far...
