Slave to the Wave Surf Report and Photos

Delray Beach Surf Festival

Fun day at the 5th Annual Delray Beach Surf Festival! Waves were just big enough for the groms to get some good rides. And us big groms managed to get a few maneuvers as well! Big Ups to the city of Delray, the promoters and all the sponsors who made the event possible.
