What a great day on Saturday. Decent steady swell with few lulls. Head high at times. Lots of clean faces. Calm winds. Broken cloud giving way to sunshine and a crowd of 400 to 500. We had an excellent day.

Smaller, less consistant swell. Onshore winds. Same morning fog/cloud, breaking out into sunshine in the afternoon. Crowd was a little smaller than Saturday

I was stoked to see so much support for the girls part of the contest.
