A very special thanks to rainchaserphotos for providing the photography and video featured on this website.
Well, another festival has come and gone. This years competition was stout! The King/Queen of the wave contest was hilarious, at one point 7 or 8 people were battling it out for the top spot. We hope next years competition and crowd are even better, also maybe the weather!
