Fun at the Logjam! 2013

IMG_1656

If you live at the Point, you’re likely to hear the sound of a surf contest horn every weekend from spring through fall. In addition to spending a little time planning where you’re going to surf, it also means there’s a constant source of entertainment.

This past weekend was probably my most favorite contest: The Logjam! put on by the Big Stick Surfing Association. Here’s why:

  • pre-1970 old boards only
  • no leashes (aka kook cords)
  • first day is Aloha day where everyone surfs twice in mixed heats (men, women, and abilities)
  • Aloha Team competition: 2 surfers on 2 old boards riding the same wave together
  • probably the best T-shirt designs

And no, I didn’t compete. But my friend and surfboard shaper, Ashley Lloyd Thompson, suggested I get out there in 2014. We shall see!

The photos really say it all so here are some links to the best I’ve seen so far. Enjoy!:
