On a fog draped Saturday morning, groms from all over the Pacific Northwest took to the waves at Devil’s Punchbowl State Park to compete in the Surfrider Foundation’s 5th annual Otter Rock and Roll competition. The competition was held by their Newport branch in honor of international Go Surfing Day. 67 competitors and over 200 spectators made it to the beach for this fun filled event including a beach clean-up with prizes for best trash art, biggest piece of trash and numerous other fun categories. The sun did make an appearance making for wonderful day of surf, sand, and smiles. The competitors put forth a great effort and most importantly it seemed a good time was had by all. The heat winners are as follows:

Surf Booties are one of the most important pieces of gear a surfer wears. To and from the beach your feet need to be protected against rocks, barnacles, and anything nature can throw at you. When you’re out in the water, your feet being the part of your body that is in the water the most, need to be protected from the cold. In the end you need something that will hold up to a beating, keep you warm in the coldest conditions, and feel comfortable when you wear it. Here is a list of our top selling best surf booties along with a brief run down on the features each boot has. If you are looking for sizing information check out our custom made wetsuit boot size chart. In the end if would like to talk to us about the best surf bootie for you, please don’t hesitate to call us and one of our expert staff can help you find what will work best for you.
