The Greatwhite Surf Series went down this past weekend at 26th Street in sunny Santa Cruz, Ca. We pulled up to the beach in the morning as the sun peeked over the mountains and lit up the Pacific Ocean. Our Jaws hit the floor as a meaty 6-8 ft approached. So we gathered the parents and competitors to make a decision and it was a unanimous, we were a go! We signed up over a 100 competitors and sent the Juniors in the water for their early morning beat down. As the day progressed on the waves just got better and better. There was never a breeze over 3 MPH and before we knew it, it was time for some delicious Chipotle burritos. After the competitors had their fill of surf and food it was time to crown a Champ!
