They did it again..Friday the 13th...waves look fun.
just normal day in Pacifica...
I've been hoping for a repeat...but no lifeguards hassling 'em this year?
This happened in Santa Cruz back in February. Both funny and frustrating. Funny if you're a pirate, frustrating if not. Best thing was the half hour before the pirate raid, the line-up was empty of all the regular dickheads. I still vividly remember a few of those waves....
I think they warned the lifegaurds...I saw some twitter action the day before...
Okay....i had no idea that this sort of ABSOLUTELY AMAZING WONDERFUL SPECTACLE actually takes place. Breathtaking. heart stopping. A thing of beauty. Thank you for the share. This is the kind of thing i want to be a part of one day.
For those who take surfing so seriously, that this would ruin your day, well, i hope these guys come and crash your party one day.
Pure entertainment. Looked like a whole lotta fun.
"We're gonna ruin everyone's day!!!!!!!!!!!!"
And what better stick of choice than none other, Costco Wave Storm- 8'0.
Sounds like unfocused missed last years excellence. http://stokereport.com/rant/barbossa-would-go
I still think a place under a big bridge nearby needs the treatment... It's go the perfect vibe for a day of fun with foam boards from costco while wearing pirate costumes...
like fin said , waves look fun...but I'm just thinking about all those nice wasted waves.
Kinda looks like surf camp
Rev too critical....you stuff someone there, they could get a bit more than a chuckle.
i think rev is right. a raid of said location would be hysterical!
Fully second Rev, 110%. FP raid would be epic.
Surf Camp √
+1 on the FP raid :)
√ "+1 on the FP raid :)"
I'll bring my GoPro for water shots.
Then we'll have the BBQ afterwards.
Do any Costco locations in the Bay Area sell the Wave Storm boards? None up north in the burbs.
Please lets do a FP raid. Please count me in.
count me in. It needs to be on a day when there is some swell in the water to really piss people off... Time to go check out all of the Costcos in the bay
HERE WE GO!
Wave glider- you can for sure pick up Wave Storm's at Costco in Santa cruz. They will be stocked with 8'0's, and 6'0's. Not sure if SF's Costco has em. I've heard sometimes they do.
How do you know unfocused?
You don't understand.The Lowers raid was by LOCAL kids and friends having fun....not transplants looking for trouble.
Tom- i personally have never owned one, but have actually pointed a few "newbs" in the direction of said Wave Storm surfing product. My friend's sister bought 3 of them for my buddy and his girlfriend. I believe they even make a 10'0 SUP. Great stuff.
I am quite intrigued to try the 6'0. Much harder to find, i understand
KOK- i think i saw a tandem "wheel barrel" ride in last year's extravaganza! oh golly
@marklar: these raids aren't about people looking for trouble. They're spoofing the "local" etiquitte
Kooktastic in the house!
@S-turd, wasted waves?!? Miki would be so disappointed...
will it be a sr sanctioned event? maybe bvb can be the mc . @imhite, the trestles raid was on a pretty good day, it makes it all the better.
I could see Dora in prime form out there, @s-lips...pushing and shoving people from their boards, calling kook on everyone. But, alas, I think that crowd would be too much even for him. He'd probably have a melt down and eventually sit there stewing in his own grandiosity. Funny to imagine that scenario, eh?
I actually did see a few 8'0" Wave Storms at the Colma/SSF Costco a few weeks ago... I think they were around $100 a piece. Surprised I haven't seen more of 'em at the Mar.
As of yesterday, 7/17/2012, Costco in Novato has five, 5, Wave Storm 8' surfboards for $99.
