WSL SLO CAL OPEN, Pismo Beach, California

wsl-slo-cal-open-pismo-beach-photographer

We’re super stoked to be a sponsor of two local World Surf League competitions this year: The SLO CAL OPEN at Pismo Beach and Morro Bay … The first one went down in Pismo Beach (Jan. 30 – Feb. 2). Check out some of the action, because, well, sometimes we take event and sports photographs too!

Organized by Andy McKay of Surfers of Tomorrow and SLO CAL, these events are great opportunities for local Central Coast surfers to get in on the action in the WSL’s Qualifying Series without having to cover hefty travel expenses! And you never know when some seasoned pros might show, like former touring pro Brett Simpson. Legit!

THE PIER

We love the pier at Pismo Beach, even in the midst of a bit of parking lot construction. It’s our local surf spot and always makes for an epic scene.

THE STAFF

McKay and the WSL assembled a top notch staff to support the event, from volunteers who prepped meals, tallied scores, and helped with set up and tear down to the professional announcers and judges. Well done, friends!

THE SURF/SURFERS

Check out some of the action! Some decent waves and some solid surfing, esp. by the amazing Sawyer Lindblad, who took the contest at only 14 years old! Awesome!
