Blackies 11th Annual Halloween Surf Competition

This Saturday the 28th will kick off the 11th Annual Halloween Surf Competition by Blackies.  Officially, the kickoff starts at 7am, but many people arrive about 30 minutes earlier for the festivities and costume show-offs.  In the past, the kids to arrive have received prizes.  Prizes are also awarded for the costumes, traditionally worn *while surfing*.

Typically, the party lasts a couple of hours, until around 9am.

Guess where they head afterward? 🙂
