Everyone loves Santa Cruz. It’s just a nice place. Every year during the Cold Water Classic, I look forward to making it up and hanging out at Nat Young’s house on the West Side. He and his mom Rosie are always hosting a good group of friends and we do everything from exploring the coast finding waves to shooting hoops in the backyard to roaming around the contest watching heats. This year the waves were pretty bad by their standards but it was still really fun for us. You can’t stop #teamgivinithell from giving it all we got.
