Surfing in Cayucos on a south swell is like weaving through LA traffic. Watch Cayucos legend Gabe Gazzola handle the crowd like a pro…13 people, 2 turns, 1 wave, and a south swell.
Surfing in Cayucos
The terrible surf conditions associated with spring weather can put a Cayucos Surfer through swell starvation. So when surf reports hype up yet another “storm of the century” off the coast of New Zealand you can almost smell the excitement in the salty air. Word of approaching waves reach the hungry surfers lounging about in local bars and Facebook pages,…”What, a south swell is on its way? No Way Bro!” As news arrives it spreads like wildfire; they reminisce of that south swell in ’06 with their beers in hand and post pictures of yesteryear through their online feeds… and the frenzy begins!
Surfing in Cayucos is generally a pleasant experience, but when you dodge more people on your first wave than the number of waves you get in the session, you know something’s gone terribly wrong…
Note: The SUP attempts surfing in Cayucos too, only to find out that when you try to dive off a frictionless surface, you end up flopping on your face! Hahaha…see 0:15 into the video and replay as you many times as you want, we did!
