If Trestles is good, Kylie is out there. You can't miss her... she's the tiny blond girl on the Rusty board that surfs well beyond her years. She is no one trick pony either; she'll throw down a frontside carve with style and ease or attack the lip backside like a polished veteran, plus she's a contest machine. So if you're out surfing Trestles with your buddies and you find yourself paddle battling for waves with little Kylie, it's best to not even try because she'll make you look silly.
Young Kylie Loveland has been on a tear lately and she has no signs of slowing down... She ended the Season with the following mind-blowing results:
NSSA Explorer Girls Southwest Division: 1st Place
NSSA Explorer Women Southwest Division: 1st Place
NSSA Open Girls Southwest Division: 2nd Place
SSS San Diego Region: 1st Place
Kylie also has been plugging away on her all new website in between heats, please give it a look:
Here is a note from Kylie and her dad, Keith:
Two weekends ago, Kylie surfed the NSSA Western Regionals, and the SSS State Championships. The SSS, is the Scholastic Surf Series, which is where all middle school teams compete as a team, and individualy. Kylie surfed four heats that Sunday morning, and in the final, she finally caught a wave and scored a 9.2, receiving a 9.8 from one judge. She got a back-up wave of 7.2, then ran out of the water, tore off her jersey, and jumped in my car to race up to Huntington to make her Explorer Womens Final at NSSA. She got a 2nd in that final, and then got a 5th in Explorer Girls and a 3rd in Open Girls. She was exhausted at the end of the day, having surfed seven heats totaling over two hours. We found out late that afternoon, that she won the SSS final. Thanks for all your support!

Not a bad showing for the Rusty groms! Keep your eyes peeled on these amped little surfers as they continue to tear through heats each weekend...
13 year old Kylie Loveland has been tearing up the heat sheets and turning heads! Recently she took 1st in the Girls Division and her team, Aviara Oaks, also took 1st overall in the San Diego Region. Then she also claimed an impressive second place finish at the Open NSSA DMJs event. Congratulations to young Kylie!

Congratulations to the young Kylie Loveland for placing 1st in the NSSA Southwest Explorer Girls, 1st in the NSSA Womens at HB Pier, and an equal 5th at the Surfing America Prime at DMJs; not bad for a weekend's work, especially when you're not old enough for a worker's permit.
