It was a beautiful day on the beach with great waves for this year’s 6th Annual Santa Cruz Waves Sandbar Shootout. This annual, invite only contest is a fun, local event. Surfers claim… or whammy their best wave to double that wave score. It’s always a good time hanging on the beach with surfers and friends from all parts of the county. Mens Finalists: Chad Underhill-Meras 4th, Shaun Burns 3rd, Noi K. 2nd, and Nat Young taking 1st. Womens Finalists: Edan Edwards 4th, Keanna Miller 3rd, Kim Mayer 2nd, and Autumn Hays taking 1st. Special awards to Troy Rettig for best barrel, Shaun Burns for best air, and Austin Smith-Ford for best whammy.
