Old school surfers and retro surfing hipsters had the time of their lives in the offshore two-to-three foot waves on offer down the line.
Vudu Surf provided 40 vintage boards and sent everyone into the past. Colorful and nostalgic shapes and a few classic facial hair styles were the salt and pepper of the RVCA Rolling Retro.
Surfers and supporters helped raise $21,000 for the Dean Randazzo Cancer Foundation (DRCF), making it the most successful Freeze For A Cause event ever.
Despite the low temperatures and the wind chill, 43 wave riders put on their wetsuits, boots, gloves and hoods and helped promote cancer awareness.
Bodysurfing is a serious sport in its own right, with a world champion and some heavy competition, to boot.
"Bodysurfing is as pure as you can get of a sport," says Tim Casinelli, director of the World Bodysurfing Championships competition. Casinelli, himself a two-time WBC Grand Champion, points to the interaction between body and wave, and simultaneous lack of very much equipment, to explain its authentic appeal.
