After taking home two national titles last season Rick Takahashi has tasted blood and is on a rampage. Takahashi claimed double wins, for the third time this season, at the NSSA Southwest Explorer conference contest held at Huntington beach over the weekend. The technical regular footer competes in the Seniors and the Masters divisions, but still surfs like an amped junior - making the most of every wave. Takahashi knows how to make heats and get scores. For instance, in this weekend's event he got at least an 8.5 in every heat he surfed (in both divisions) and he even nailed a perfect 10 in one of the finals! Once Takahashi gets his momentum going he is tough to stop: better get out of the way because he is blazing full speed ahead to another pair of national titles!
