Happy Hour

11911 600x369 1

TGI Friday, October 29th, 2010.
We got reports of wave action, so we grabbed a couple beers and some seeds and
mosied on down to good ole College Point after work to check it out.
Happy hour, Goleta style.

Our sources were right. There were some fun sets on the high tide and the
crowd wasn’t too thick, for Campus standards.

Doug Yartz was there, in the thick of it, getting his share of fun ones.

There was also a handful of guys around the corner, working the lefts
and enjoying a slight offshore effect.

1456 600x428 2
1261 600x392 1
1556 600x429 1

Most the guys were packed in a fairly small area, but for the most part,
they managed to stay clear of one another.

1851 495x324 1
2047 495x333 1

For the most part…

Surfing Campus as much as he does, Doug’s used to this kind of stuff.
No shortage of Costco boards out there…

Marcos Smith was scoring a lot of fun rides.
All that time he spends in the water is starting to pay off.

Suddenly, from way behind he rocks, comes a speed blur across a wave. Tyler Anderson was here. Surfing the sames waves as the other guys, but in a very different way.

Tyler makes his own boards with a Monarch label,
and they certainly get him moving down the line quickly.

7115 600x401 1
7314 600x501 1
7614 510x516 1

I know, dude, we’re sorry, but we love this shot…

9611 600x383 1

You gotta love this guy; Costco board, bare back, and he was charging it hard,
dropping into most anything. And getting a lot of fun ones…

Let’s take a moment to talk about the rocks at Campus Point.
They get no respect. Running into them would certainly screw you up.
Yet people drop in right on top of them, totally ignoring them.
Marcos Smith, doing just that.

Julio Lorda was flirting with them..

5719 600x447 1

Tyler surfs around them with as much ease as we navigate through our living room furniture.

We missed the shot of the day when a kid dove out of a wave, leaving his
Costco board to skip accross the rocks. Darn.

11311 600x411 1

And then there are guys like Mark Morey, who actually taunts the rocks as he goes by..

8100 600x470 1

There were a lot of students out and about, getting ready for the start of a long
Halloween weekend.

11109 450x395 1

We’re going to assume that this guy’s from a foreign country…

4917 600x381 1
5137 600x471 1
5424 600x525 1

Marcos Smith.

6013 439x436 1
7810 600x400 1

So as the sun dropped lower, and we finished our last beer,
happy hour began to wind down.

7910 600x423 1
9712 600x469 1

Marcos again!

11211 600x543 1

So far, so good, as far as this winters waves go.

11611 495x441 1
11811 600x382 1

Viva Goleta.
