Just took a quick look, kinda like a train wreck.
Is just me or is that the crappiest junk surf I've seen a contest held in.
That uphill river current looks brutal, and the side shore cross chop - no thanks.
If there was ever an argument to be running the skis ferrying the contestants back out, this is it.

My first heat of a WSA invitational being held on the pier's south side was in head-high plus solid south swell conditions. The rip going north through the pilings was horrendous. This was when you needed three waves, not two like today's scoring. Six surfers is a heat that made it more entertaining, though.

I scored really good waves this morning.

It's LOL these guys are stuck in Huntington and the wind has been pretty crappy anywhere within striking distance.:)

Lowers looking subpar too.:ROFLMAO:

You could always join this clown show
2:20 - Really, WTF was this guy thinking!?:crazy2: These are the kinds of people that deserve...to have answers demanded of them, and if need be extracted from them.

10:59 Again, same as above, the rider is facing a slalom course, and in the midst of the slalom some fuckface decides he's going to burn him for absolutely no apparent reason utter than the fact the passler is a complete kook.

Looked at the pier cam Mon morning and it was brutal. Close period s swell sets, 90% overhead closeouts, and an arm-burning, relentless current ripping thru the pier piling.The kids that went out in that surf have my full respect. If there wasn't a contest NO ONE would've been out here on the ss. It was dangerous.

I just flipped through the Surflie cam rewind from yesterday.

You're being overly dramatic.
