Island Sea Dreams Open Comp 9/14/2013

As we kicked off our 2nd comp of Season 2 2013, fifty SLSA surfers entered the Island Sea Dreams HP5 comp. We have not had this kind of participation in years!

In the Open held Saturday September 14, 2013, thirty out of the fifty were scheduled to surf, 23 of which did. It seems as though more and more are finding surfing in SL and discovering it’s a very fun and exciting sport to be a part of.
