Truth be told, I’ve known the day would come when the Kenworthy kids would storm the NSSA ranks. We’re just lucky it’s only two of them at this point.
A couple of weeks ago in Huntington Beach, Bella Kenworthy captured the NSSA Explorer Girls and Super Girls season titles, while her kid brother, Loyal, won the Explorer Super Groms. Bella also clinched the Southwest Conference Open Super Girls title with two events remaining on the schedule.
Not content to rest on her laurels, Bella headed down to Oceanside last weekend for another NSSA comp, and again, came away with two division wins in the Open Girls and Open Super Girls. Plainly put, the girl is on fire.
Bella and Loyal are two of five Kenworthy kids, which means in the not-too-distant future we could see a full family takeover of the NSSA. We’ve seen some sibling champions over the years, but never like this Brady Bunch from Dana Point.
And if you think they can surf, you should see what they’re getting up to on their skateboards.
