Cold Water Classic warm up, tomorrow Day 1 of CWC Santa Cruz
The Surf industry is making its way into Santa Cruz, California, this morning for the 2011 Cold Water Classic. There was a solid stream of surfers from Orange County pulling into the parking lot and hitting the line up for a one day warm up before tomorrows start.
Kolohe Andino showed up this afternoon, just in from his two ASP event wins in Brazil . Brett Simpson, Pat and Tanner Gudauskas both where in early this morning. Nate Yeomans was in the line up before I got there and Chris Waring had just gotten into town as I left the Lane this afternoon.
Tomorrow will be a 7:30am start (Live via oneill.com/cwc/LiveClassic.htm) with the three heat trials running before the 10:04am high tide, then from what we are being told the contest will go on hold through high tide and pick up with the main event on the back side of the high tide peak at around 11:30am.
