A good time was had by all. Kudos to Mike and Julie for coordinating this year!
Mr J, Paul Jensen, Gary Geist, to name 3, were notably absent. Some new folks showed including Tony (Swordie) all the way from Wales and Ben Shipman from San Diego.
Sand Dollar Beach was basically overexposed to a new NW swell which gave the few who were brave enough to go for it a hard time. When Keith Melville came in and told his tale of woe, I knew I made the right choice to stay on the beach. Mark Scott and Forrest were two of the lucky ones that made it to the outside and actually catch waves.
Peter Costello contributed the art work for the shirts.
Some fine raffle items were donated... a multitude of plywood keel fin blanks from EasternPacific, A Walker Blank and T-shirt from Scott at Foam, Fins & Fiberglass in Ventura, a gallon and a half Resin Research Epoxy kit from Lee Vanderhurst, Several Red-X and Lokbox fin sets from Tom at Red-X, A "Litmus" DVD and UK T-shirts from Swordie, some T-Shirts and nice books from Mike and Julie Paler, a Clark Blank from Mike Sedgwick in Carmel, etc. Sorry if I missed any of you who kicked in. Ken kicked in a really nice hollow carbon Kolstof for auction. Proceeds to go to Swaylocks.
Hopefully someone can make any additions necessary.
Anyway... some pics:
