I'm embarrassed to say that this was my first ever surf contest. Skiing and surfing have very similar lifestyles and vibes, and many skiers use surfing as their main summer activity. I have never been one of those people obviously, but just as a spectator sport, surfing is amazing. (And considerably warmer than ski contests.) I highly recommend checking it out!
The first couple days, the weather was clear and gorgeous, but that didn't make much for waves...
As a storm rolled in off the coast, waves came along with it and made conditions quite a bit better. The blue skies were not longer to be seen, but it was worth it! We saw some crazy impressive talent, and I wish I was able to keep up with names of athletes, but I came away with a lot of photos of surfers and I have no idea who they are. But I love the photos!
I even got to see an old friend (who has creative style choices...).
I'm very stoked for next year!
