The Good, The Bad and
Sunday, February 14th, 2010. Valentines Day.
A simple lover’s walk on the beach.
The good thing was it was a beautiful afternoon. The hills were green, the
sun was warm and the beach was the perfect place to be.
The bad thing was the 4 day weekend brought out the masses, and the surf
was less than ample for a crowd this size.
End result; a bunch of surfers of all levels, packed into a very small line up.
There were some hot surfers out.
This guy was getting some great rides on this trippy little board. Is that a biscuit?
Whatever it’s called, it looks really fun.
Brandon Arroyan was keeping it local with a Stoker V-Machine.
And this dude was putting on a longboard clinic with some excellent nose riding.
This is where the story takes a turn for the worse.
Due to the close proximity of all these good and bad surfers, certain technical maneuvers that
require a little elbow room can cause some problems.
Such as the world famous Helicopter Takeoff.
A bumping of boards.
Which led to a retaliation of a big face spray and a pointed board launch.
Which all led to tempers flaring in the break zone.
All this ugliness on Valentines Day boys?
Can’t we all just get along?
They eventually hashed things out without any injuries.
Good job guys.
