2016 Venice Surf-A-Thon

The Venice Surf-A-Thon was held at the Venice Pier for the first time in the contest's 23 year history.

Because of street closures in Venice due to that Christmas Marathon, there was a last decision to move the contest from the Breakwater to the Venice Pier. As always, super laid back, no pressure contest, with divisions from Groms, Ladies, the young guns, the old guys, and the really old guys.

Being held alongside the pier this year, it gave the crowd a better spot to cheer on (and heckle) the competitors.

Norm on the nose.

MCing the contest was Donny Wilson & Ger-I Lewis

And the results?

As always, the results were announced at the awards party later in the evening. There were product tosses, live bands, alcohol, etc... Rick Massey's daughters got 1st and 2nd in their division, Zypher Wilson got a trophy or 2 probably, as did Matt Smith. Savanna and Mary took top spots for the Ladies. And....well, Ger-I will possibly release the official results...sometime soon.
