  1. They should organise these events more often: you could actually surf waves in not overly packed spots.
    All those leash-less, barista, hipster longboarders dudes and gals must have been there.

    The vibe at the Pass was amazing on Saturday and Sunday!
    Also a very low risk of getting hit in the head by one of their longboards.
