Local groms Brogan Shea, 12, and Sierra Shea, 9, of Gearhart took first and third place in the Agate Beach Surf Classic in the 12-and-under youth bracket. It was the only surf contest able to run this year in Oregon, held last weekend in Newport. Other local competitors included Emelio Tate, 13, from Cannon Beach and Fiona Lippy, 8, from Nehalem.
Both Brogan and Sierra have grown up on the North Coast and have honed their skills at all the local surf spots. The Shea siblings were proud to represent and look forward to future competitions. They also enjoyed a super supportive cheering crowd from the local surf community.
