We headed into the Malibu Boardriders “Call to the Wall” Contest with a bleak surf report—1 Foot-flat, but they were wrong. Saturday was waist to chest high surf and Sunday it was pumping chest to head high surf all day! There were some epic heats!! The best part of the whole weekend for me was the paddle race! Kevin Skvarna, Kai Takayama, Jack Van Wagoner, and Avalon Gall (Kevin Paddled twice) killed it and won the race against 8-10 teams!! Kevin paddled it out in the end with Phil Rajzman and pulled off the win! Great job from all four of these surfers!!! Everyone did a great job this weekend, such a great group of surfers, friends, family and OLSC club members!
Thank you to MBC for putting on a great surf contest!!!
