Heading back to the beach on Sunday. A new front arrived in the night, winds clocked from SW to N in less than 12 hours. Best part, these side onshore winds are BUILDING!

Brandon Bowe throws a kite loop against a gray sky.

Sunday was more overcast and darker than Saturday. So, the images needed a lot more touching up in Photoshop and it shows. How about wind and sun next time? Has happened a lot over the years of the event, just not always.

Jumping without footstraps, what keeps rider and board together? Inertia and a fair amount of skill.

Awesome Pictures! Looks like a windy event. Good mix of straps, strapless, surfboards, skimboards, boots, etc.

Thank you! It is a good event, even better in strong winds and nice sized waves. It is a great wave venue.
