It was a beautiful and sunny Saturday morning for the Logjam! 2012 surf contest, which runs today and tomorrow on Pleasure Point.
Put Big Stick Surfing Association, the contest is the longest running surf competition of "old boards, no cords"—teams compete on vintage boards from the 1960's or earlier.
In addition to the contest, surfers also flocked to Pleasure Point on Saturday morning to participate in a paddle out dedication for the World Surfing Reserve, which was preceeded by an Ohlone Native American blessing.
Today, the WSR dedicates Santa Cruz as a Surfing Reserve, making it the first World Surfing Reserve in North America.
Santa Cruz County Surpervisor John Leopold declared April as the World Surfing Reserve Month and gave a speech on the cliff before the paddle out, saying, "We're the local government that actually likes the Coastal Commission and what they have done to keep our coasts clear of rampant developement."
There will be a World Surfing Reserve dedication ceremony and a surfing fair at Steamers Lane starting at 1 p.m. on Saturday. See you there!
