The third annual Hotdoggers Championships took place in Hermosa Beach on Saturday September 29th and we were there to capture the fun. The waves were toe to ankle high but it didn’t seem to stop the competitors from having a blast! Special thanks to Manhattan Beach Toyota for their continued support!

Many of the kids have never been to the beach let alone ride a wave!  The Jimmy Miller Foundation combined forces with the Just Keep Livin Foundation for an end of the year school event for local Los Angeles High School students.  They provided the students with six different stations which taught the kids how to surf, body surf, Ocean safety, nutrient, Yoga, Ocean Ecology and a beach clean up. The event took place at El Porto Beach in Manhattan Beach.

An early April swell hit El Porto in Manhattan Beach and brought waist to overhead waves with it.  El Porto, know for having it’s fair share of closeouts, handled the swell well offering Olamana Eleogram, Dane Zaun, Kelly Zaun, Mike Edwards, Derek Brewer, Keith Brewer, Richard Silva and others some fun waves.

Rainy Swell brings fun waves to the South Bay
Another fun swell hits the South Bay but brings rain with it. This swell packed a wedgy, board snapping punch to most South Bay beaches. The direction of this swell was a bit weird, closing out most of the popular breaks and bringing waves where they rarely break. The weather brought fog and rain making it tricky to shoot.
