Well, we had a great weekend of surf and warm weather at the Swamis Surfing Association “Return to the Reef” surf contest this weekend! Thank you to the SSA for putting on an awesome event. They fed everyone all weekend long with great food from local restaurants and markets—so good!! Lots of carbs!! The vibe was really mellow and everyone had a great time. Thanks to the club members who came down and hung out with the team and cheered them on!!
Some of our club rippers were invited to surf in the Vans event at 15th Street in Del Mar on Sunday, so lots of shuttling back and forth for some surfers, but everyone made all their heats except Michael Takayama who selflessly hauled James Culhane back and forth to the Del Mar Event and missed his final. James Culhane came over from Hawaii and is staying with Michael—we got him into the Cardiff event and he ripped all weekend.
GREAT JOB YOU GUYS!!!
