This years event really turned out magical. With no swell in the forecast, the waves came in and the conditions were glassy for the entire event. Tony Alvarado brought out some new beautiful shapes and the heats were stacked. 1976 World Champ Peter "PT" Townend surfed against grommet Jake Baker in a fun filled heat. The memory of John Kissel was in the air as the waves kept coming in and seemingly getting bigger. The technique and intensity of Jay Larson was unstoppable as he became the new Surfside Seventies champ. Close behind Jay was Paul Pugliesi who threw some incredible power turns. The "Expression Session"was about 20 minutes with about 20 guys out trying to get the best wave for the bamboo fin trophy and awards. Joe Paterno won over all the riders with his colorful wig and long sweeping left to the beach. Todd Horton beat out everyone with a spectacular wipeout...he'll be OK.
July 10th 2010....First heat starts at 7am...15 minute heats...best of 2 waves...you will pick a number from a hat and there will be 4 boards with your corresponding number...pick the best one....all 1970 era boards....every board is verified to be 1970-79 by our experts from the era...

Contestants must pick a number out of a hat to see which seventies surfboard they get to ride in the heat.
This year will be a separate heat called the "Expression Session" in between Quarters and Semi Finals with a select group and whoever wants to get in. There will be a trophy for the winner of that session. Remember to bring down the old classic seventies boards. Even though there will be many boards to ride we still want more boards down there to see and admire shapes from the seventies and beyond.
The waves decided to come in for the day starting out a little windy but calmed down for some great peaks in the afternoon. Some standout retro board riders were Linden Cabellon, Jay Larson, Pat Rydell, Chris Scarfe, Brian Ruddy, Nick Kennedy, Adam Newsom, Aaron Peterson, Mark Belmonte and Jason Warren. One interesting surfboard was the warped Randy Lewis fish that worked really well, the David Nuuhiwa fish and the Patrillo super pintail single fin were winners as well. It is great to see the myriad of shapes.
