Bodyboarders Representing. photos: Patrick Bremser

Tuesday morning saw mediocre conditions while the tide was still a bit high making most spots a bit sluggish. Alas, a few bodyboarders found themselves in the right spot as the tide began to drain out and then served up perfect conditions. Local boys J.D. Woosley, Sammy Garcia, Kevin, Jesse, and bodyboarding legend Chris “wonton” […]

Yesterday the majority of California got absolutely dumped on. Rain, thunderstorms, even tornado warnings for the LA area! While the rain is pouring and the south winds are howling, the surf in our neck of the woods is a little less than worth getting the wetsuit wet. But that doesnt mean there aren’t other options […]

Pleasure Point Ghost Riders at Dawn. photos: Patrick Bremser
