U.S. Surf Open

U.S. Surf Open

I spent yesterday at the U.S. Surf Open in Huntington Beach, Calif., the original Surf City. The swells were great. The athletes were jaw dropping. I have sand in the binding of my notebook and too much sun on my shoulders. Another perfect day in Southern California.

    I don’t care what Huntington Beach says. Santa Cruz is, was, and will always be Surf City.
