Junior girls began paddling it out at the National Scholastic Surf Assn. championships shortly after I got to the Huntington pier late this afternoon.
The girls were really into it.
And going back for more while they still had time.
The waves were pounding the pier when I got there early this evening
Naturally, some riders rose to the occasion
Even if it occasionally meant getting caught in a spray storm
The rest of us just enjoyed the show
Watching the surf
And riding it
It’s been so cloudy lately I had to pause my run to snap this
