The third annual Point Mugu Surf Contest Presented by Quiksilver went off in Ventura in, on and above five-foot peaky tubes and ramps. Local heroes, military heroes, friends and family congregated for what’s fast become a unique and beloved event. Don’t be jealous because you can’t go surf here — these guys and girls deserve every bit of it.

    Last time i check my dad (Davey Smith, Pictured above?) was 52 years old and getting somewhat stationary and his son (I) was the young chap doing airs. But hey you guys at Surfing know you stuff… I kid, but not really.

    Brandon, i remember your dad Dave Smith. Use to surf with him on base and was a local there. How’s he doing?

    The place is locked up tight as a drum with the new force protection in place. Military members can’t even bring guest’s. I know, I’m military. Ohh yeah!
    I wish it went off all year!!
