Johnny McElgunn, 15, and Nate Leal, 17, of Cambria surfed in the Volcom VQS Championships May 13-15 at Newport Beach. McElgunn was one of just 64 entrants in the “Grom” (young surfer) contest; Leal was in the Junior Division. Neither earned a share of $50,000 prize money, but even participating in the prestigious competition shows they’re skilled wave riders.
