More Big Friday Shots




I used to think towing in was ridiculous, but after watching the competing teams maneuver through the massive beachbreak and work in tandem to ride treacherous waves that couldn't be touched by traditional paddling, I changed my mind.

It may not be a form of surfing that I can relate to personally, but I had to admire the battle between man and nature that went on last week. The only question I was left with after interviewing a local tow-in guy named Ryan, was why no Oregonians were invited to compete in the Nelscott Reef Classic...

Anyone?

Hmm, maybe cuz the majority of them aren't all that talented, especially in comparison to the SC crew? I mean, they've got day jobs laying tile & selling "surf" t-shirts--they are not pros.
