Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz

The past two weekends I had a Surfing America Prime event at Steamer Lane in Santa Cruz and a Volcom event at Pismo Beach. The waves in Santa Cruz were big; big wave surfer Peter Mel was actually out there as water patrol surfing 15 foot waves on a 9’6 gun at the middle peak. the water was really cold, but i was warm in my 5:4:3 hooded Cypher wetsuit and neo-goo booties from Quiksilver. To get out into the water I had to jump off a rock about six feet high and there were eight foot waves breaking on it, with non-stop set waves coming through. I had a board that was too small and was really slidey, but luckily I still got 9th in the Prime event. For the Pismo contest the waves were really walled and it was super hard to pick a good one, so unfortunately I lost in the semi- finals. Although I lost earlier than I wanted, I still had a great time at the event hanging out with my friends from there, and getting to see Nate Tyler! Hopefully I will do better next time in the Prime event at Upper Trestles next month.
