Vans Pier Classic - 2012

Huntington Bch

 

  

Surf Intro
The Vans Pier Classic 1012 is the first pro surf contest held this year at the Huntington Beach Pier.  The photos in the first 2 sections were taken on Sunday with overhead sized waves and winds making life really difficult for the contestants although this is my favorite kind of surf to photograph.
