As much work as it was, being involved with putting together the SCLU Memorial Day Invitational was a pretty awesome experience. The conditions were working against us the whole time, not to mention gas prices, but the surfing went on. The Santa Cruz Longboard Union took first place in the team standings and my friends and club members placed well in their divisions.
The sponsers (all those banners are now in my truck taking up too much space):
A rare view from the judges stand:
Aside from the contests there were after parties and BBQ's - making for a very traditional Memorial Day. eating, drinking, and being with friends. I think I drink more on this holiday weekend than any other. Yesterday I received a bunch of leftover food and Jessie and I had our own little holiday lunch and beerfest!
Oh yeah, and I did actually get some surfing in too! The waves were meager, but again, all my friends were out and it was just fun to surf with everyone and be out in the water.
