Just got these shots from my friend Manny Vargas (check out his awesome surf water photography at mannyvphoto.com). Some really cool stuff happening here in Southern San Diego. First of all Mike Pilgrim of SurfCraft International (click here to see more of what Mike's got going on) is teaming up with Hawaiian hellman and pipeline charger Kainoa McGee to get Kainoa's new stand ups out here in So. Cal. - from the buzz around town the boards are sweet and there's five or six local guys waiting in line to get there chance on the demo boards Mikey's got stashed somewhere (pics below). Also, it turns out that the mad scientists at Plus-One are putting together race boards and jumping into the game with stock class boards as well as fourteen footers. All of this dutifully recorded by Manny V., check out his shots below.
|Wide angle/high angle: love the perspective Manny V.!|
|Top-side Kainoa board... like how foiled the tail is... low volume.|
|Eh brah, five boxes!|
