Mike Moore: Surf Meet

Mike Moore: Surf Meet

Project 52 member, Mike Moore’s Project.

I live in Encinitas California. It is a small but growing city 25 miles north of San Diego. Known for its legendary surf spots, Pipes, Swami’s and Stonesteps to name a few, Encinitas is often described as laid-back and funky.

For my project I chose to focus on Stonesteps Beach; in particular, the 27th Annual Stonesteps Longboard surf contest. Held on one Saturday in August, this neighborhood event brings old friends back together again and offers an opportunity to make new friends. The event is completely run by volunteers and neighbors. Local businesses donate prizes for the winners of the contest.

My vision was to show the contestants surfing and spectators mingling. Also, I wanted to capture details showing you the spirit of the event. A behind the scenes view that most people may not think about but, once they see the photographs, have an “ah-ha” moment.

Here is my view of the 27th Annual Stonesteps Longboard surf contest…enjoy the ride!
