2016 12 10 Blind Surfer, Scott Leason, Contributes to Team USA’s Success at the ISA Worlds

LA JOLLA SHORES, CALIFORNIA – December 10, 2016 – His personal performance in the Visually Impaired Division may not have met up with his own expectations. Nor did it evidence the considerable preparation leading up to the event. However, at the end of Day Two at the 2016 ISA World Adaptive Surfing Championship, blind surfer Scott Leason pushed Team USA past Team Brazil in a hotly contested race for Gold. Leason’s efforts increased Team USA’s point total to 6513 but they lead by the narrowest of margins. Team Brazil is nipping at their heels with 6508 points. Can Team USA’s scrappy contingent, which includes defending World Champ, Jesse Bellaur, and 2016 US Champ, Christiaan “Otter” Bailey, protect their lead today at La Jolla Shores?
