Part 3

Saturday, January 25th, 2014.
Our favorite mushy beginner point break was transformed into a world class wave.

 

10131 704x358 1
1508 697x467 1

There were the usual soft tops and SUPs around,
but the guys getting the set waves were on longboards.

71310 445x299 1

We saw several guys go from the point all the way down past the jailhouse.

 

71210 591x286 1
71110 651x413 1
71010 686x332 1

And at twice the normal speed of Devereux, or Everslow, as it’s affectionately known to some.

7082 600x378 1
7072 600x328 1
12811 470x280 1

Perfect glassy conditions and warm sunshine.

13010 600x393 1
7042 600x414 1
7182 457x353 1

The crowd really wasn’t bad here, there were more onlookers than actual surfers.

7022 600x308 1

Mr. Stoker was on hand, keeping things under control.
Stoked, as always!

The sun got covered up, but the waves kept coming.

4204 692x432 1

Trevor Scoggins was on it early, eager to soak up as much of this swell as possible.

10315 600x329 1
16310 600x504 1
11414 600x362 1

Paul Ruben was enjoying some nice rides as well.

10814 601x378 1
11914 600x510 1
16210 600x348 1

As was his son.
What a great way to spend a Sunday!

Another Goleta local, Mike Alexander was enjoying his home turf.

15910 658x409 1
15510 600x400 1

The sky got darker and some raindrops fell.
Maybe the drought of waves AND rain was ending!

7782 679x354 1
7772 600x221 1
15810 683x334 1
2002 600x527 1

We were astounded by all the empty perfection zipping by.

15211 642x365 1
20510 600x479 1

Some spots had an aggressive local crew.
” You wanna surf here, you gotta get by me….”

14810 666x276 1
14910 668x303 1
20410 698x218 1

Sometimes, the sweeper becomes the sweepee….
What a shame.

15311 689x462 1

We headed into another work week, with the waves still coming.
Maybe Monday folks will be surfed out….
