Surf Line '11 Summer

The Surf Line pages are perhaps our most popular pages.  Every surfer likes to see pictures of themselves and their buddies in the water.  The newest photos are always at the top; the older ones move down the page.  These are the surfers who were riding the waves of the Riviera during the Summer of 2011...

It's a lot of work being Mayor of Torrance Beach.  Between judging the International Surf Contest in Hermosa with Mike Purpus and winning a third place medal in the Unlimited Paddleboard Division of the Velzy Stevens Pier to Pier race; John has been a busy guy.  You rip, John!

Hollywood Steve got his birthday wish and got to go surfing (again) on his 64th birthday.  One of the funniest guys in the line-up, one of Steve's classic quips is"  "It's better to look good than be good".  Well Steve, you are both...

Sometimes we get creative in finding things to do while waiting between wave sets...

The crew, ever vigilant, waiting for that perfect outside wave...
