Former Carlsbad High surfer Austin Ganz helped lead the University of California Santa Barbara surf team to a win the NSSA West Coast College Surfing Season 2010-11 Title, by finishing 4th in the Men’s Short Board on Monday, January 17th at D Street in Encinitas.

When asked about this, Ganz said, “Surfing and education go hand in hand, competitive surfing teaches you to work hard for something you want like a college education.”

Austin was one of only 3,600 new Freshmen admitted to UCSB this year. Austin’s degree at UCSB is declared as Marine Biology (Ecology, Evolution and Marine Biology EEMB).

In the future Austin will be supporting UCSB as a scientific scuba diving and underwater researcher for Santa Barbara Coastal Long Term Ecological Research program.

“Carlsbad is a great place to grow up, it has given me a great appreciated for our oceans, and I look forward to continuing my education and one day being a Marine Biologist,” Ganz says.

We can’t say we disagree with Austin. Congrats!
