The contest was held Saturday, June 7 at Los Cerritos. There was a good sized crowd on hand and many hopeful surfers drawn by the prize money, $500 US 1st place, $300 US 2nd place and $200 US 3rd place. I understand that Irak Collins took the first place prize. As promised, some photos from the contest.

The judges and the sweet chicas!
The little sign in front of the Cerritos Beach Club says “Private Guests Only” – hmmm, a “sign” of things to come, i.e. the Caboization of local beaches. By law, the beaches belong to the people who are guaranteed access. But everyone in Los Cabos knows how that works.
Los Cerritos Beach Condo construction, a really scary sight!

That’s it for now. The astute among you may have noticed the incorrect copyright date on the photos. Canon Factory Service reset the date/time on the camera and I just now noticed it. Ni modo.
