2016 08 13 Oceanside Longboard Club Contest – Coach Pat Weber photos

OCEANSIDE PIER, NORTH COUNTY COASTAL SAN DIEGO — August 13, 2016 – The always crowd pleasing Tandem Surfing Division competition took place at the Oceanside Longboard Surf Club Contest with tropical water temperatures and sunny skies. Veteran San Diego Surfing Academy LLC Instructor Travis Long & Ahlia Hoffman are seen in green, along with Brian & Illa McEvilly from WindanSea in blue, Paully & Stephanie in Orange, and Steven & Culenette in black. It was Maui Paully’s first time ever competing with partner Stephanie and Steven & Culenette’s first tandem surfing contest ever. The surf was a challenging but contestable 3-4 foot hight tide womp and rides ending in a crash and burn in the cobblestones lining the shore were not uncommon. Now that we are officially in the “Olympic Era of Surfing”, wouldn’t it be wonderful to see this fun and exciting form of waveriding included!? Coach Pat Weber photos
