Ocean Park Surf Contest - Awards Ceremony

In an incredible mixture of art, history, and luck, this year's contest trophies have been made by Robert Asher from actual salvaged wood from the Pacific Ocean Park Pier, aka P.O.P. pier. The wood is a tight-grain Fir that has been beveled and sanded on the top where the metal plaques have been screwed to the surface. The rest of the wood has been left in its original state and in areas traces of the paint used on the pier are still visible. One end of the trophies has been stamped "POP 1958" with a wood punch and inked. P.O.P. was founded in 1958. The other end of the trophies has "OPSC" stamped into it for Ocean Park Surf Club.

"We made trophies and souvenirs out of salvaged wood from P.O.P. pier". said Kevin Osborne, founder of the Ocean Park Surf Club and contest organizer, "Some people think that awakened the ocean gods who brought us a great swell for the contest that lasted all day without any wind ever ruining it"

  1. In turn you also want to ensure your guests can sit comfortably without being crammed into a small venue, or even worse, being left to feel as if they're shoved in at the back, and can barely see the top table.
