Central Cal Contest

1511 675x249 1

Goleta Surfing took a little weekend getaway up to Central California on February 9th, 2008.
We got an early start up North to find pristine conditions and a powerful swell rolling through the
cold, green waters.

When we came through another town, the offshores were howling and
some meaty sets were keeping everybody busy.

Meanwhile, on the beach, something else was brewing. A surf contest was
setting up and a couple of Goleta’s finest were signed up.

So the free surfers got a few last rides in before contest time, and we geared
up for a full day of taking pictures of some of the best surfers on great waves.

were closing out, making for some equally heavy thumpings.
