Rachel Presti, competing in Girl’s U18 (18 years old and under), won Germany’s first world surfing championship, at the International Surfing Association (ISA) Junior World Surfing Championships, in Huntington Beach, California.

In the finals, Presti, a 16-year-old surfer, only needed two rides to score 14.41 points; Keala Tomada Bannert of Hawaii finished in second place with 10.5 points; Minami Nonaka of Japan placed third with 9.3 points; and Summer Macedo of Hawaii finished fourth with 8.37 points.

Although Presti was the only German to advance to the finals, she was part of a strong German Surf team that placed 9th, in the 44-nation field. Presti won all but one heat on her way to the final round and was among the highest scoring surfers each day of the competition.

“I would like to thank my family, sponsors, teammates, and Coach Surtmann for all of their support throughout the competition. Winning this event will continue to drive and motivate me to train even harder, and I hope to represent Germany at the 2020 Olympic Games,” stated Presti.
