One of the founding principles of the Dana Point Surf Club was that it was going to be a force for good in the community. Be it providing access to the surf for those who may not have the opportunity or rallying the local surf shops for a bit of friendly competition, the club has grown into much more than just a crew with matching T-shirts.

This week, the Dana Point Surf Club will award Dana Hills High School senior Noah Albrecht with a scholarship to help him kick-start his college dreams. A student with a 4.0 GPA, Albrecht next year will be attending San Diego State University, where he is interested in studying marine conservation and ecology.

“Noah has been a great example representing the club and high school,” said Eric Diamond, Dana Point Surf Club president. “He is a true ambassador in the Dana Point surf community— not only a great surfer, but always a positive force in and out of the water, always rallying the team and enhancing our competitions and community outreach.”

Besides riding surfboards, Albrecht lately has also been experimenting with shaping a few of them, too. It’s this kind of creativity, passion and stoke that’s going to take him far.

The Dana Point Surf Club will be hosting a “surf pizza” night for the Dana Hills High School surf team from 6-8 p.m. on Friday, May 10, at Parallel Pizzeria in Dana Point. Albrecht and other Dana Hills High surfers will be recognized.
