Strong start at day one of Oktoberfest
Thirty six pros showed up at the fouth annual Oktoberfest at Balboa pier. The conditions were windy, but contestable. The pros took to the water and impressed the judges and spectators. The forecast tomorrow is expected to be better. By the end of the day, the swell had picked up significantly. The wind is predicted to be offshore in the morning for round 2 of the pro heats. There is a lot at stake for the pros. This is the final stop of the UST and will determine who will be finishing where on tour. Beaker has locked up first place, but the other top spots are up for grabs. Stay tuned, this event should produce some very exciting skimboarding.
