Surfing group names art competition winner

Christopher Barraza, a University City High School senior, won first place in this year’s La Jolla Shores Surfing Association’s art competition for its 10th Annual Menehune Surf Contest and Gathering of the Crew event, set for April 17 at La Jolla Shores.

He beat out 225 other students who submitted entries and will have his art featured on contest T-shirts.

The Annual Menehune Surf Contest and Gathering of the Crew is hosted by the LJSSA in conjunction with Ando & Friends.

The top 45 entries of the surfing-inspired artwork can be viewed through the end of April in the Youth wing of the La Jolla Riford Library & Jacobs Annex.
