Here are a few more shots from the International Surfing Day (ISD) event up at Brookhurst street up in HB on Saturday.
There was actually quite a good turnout, especially considering the fact that it was raining on and off all morning. I almost turned around and went home, thinking that it would get rained out, but I am glad that I didnt!
There were a number of people displaying there goods and giving away gear from Doc, to Vans, to the event organizer, Surfing Magazine. Hundreds of people showed up to help clean the beach, grab a free t-shirt and test out the latest and greatest from Doc, including the new 5`5 Doc Aviso!
The 5`5 was in the water from the moment that I brought it down, to the moment I left! From 16 year old groms to 4o year old vets, the New Toy is definitely making a name for itself. Multiple people agreed that it was the best board they rode that day, and I even had a few people tell me about how they have been riding there New Toy religiously since Doc released that model a year or two back!
After the event up in Huntington Beach, I headed back down south to San Clemente to get ready for our friends party. My roommates band The Secret People played for a packed house, and everyone celebrated Summer Solstice in style! Even Cole showed up for a bit with his wife Dana, which is always a blast!! Here are a few pics I snapped off..
Also Summer is now in full swing so get those grovelers ready. Now more than ever you will appreciate that BD3, New Toy , or RNF when u are catching all the waves and your friends are bogging on their shortboards!!
