Lights, cameras, action! That was the theme of the night at Seaside Reef yesterday as Nike lit up San Diego’s most shreddable surf spot as part of their “Chosen” tour. Hundreds of surfers from up and down the coast, and as far away as Japan and Brazil made their way to the parking lot to find free tacos, DJ Vega bumping tunes all night, and a rock band, Wavves, jamming oceanfront. For locals it was a one of a kind experience—nobody’s ever done something like that at our little spot! Despite the lack of quality surf there were some moments of brilliance—mostly from the flyweight groms—and it’s safe to say that was a good time was held by all who made it down.
Thanks to Nike, California State Parks, California State lifeguards, Encinitas Lifeguards, and Nike 6.0 athletes Dusty Payne, Laura Enever, Kai Barger, and Koa Smith for stoking out the kids with their presence—even if the groms were paddle battling them like ravenous rats.
