Above, 16-year-old K5 Team rider Austin Ganz of Carlsbad, a senior at Carlsbad High School, helped Team O’Neill win the 2009 Switchfoot Bro-Am, along with Cory Lopez, Kyle Knox and Noah Erickson. When asked what it was like for the goofy-footer, Ganz said “My regular stance was easy scoring a few 7s, but by Switchfoot, it was just fun. It was great to surf with the pros.” This summer Ganz is traveling to surf in Australia at Boomerang Beach and then the west coast of El Salvador. Courtesy photo
