Blackies is a huge event and seems to be getting bigger every year.. This was the first year I participated in this one and it was so fun!
We all pitched in and did a potluck! I brought smoked salmon with all the fixings and it was a hit!
Hubs has a secret brine he uses when he smokes the fish.. Next year we will have to do 2!
Anyway the costumes were amazing! Surf was crowded and when you looked at the beach you saw hundreds of spectators and a ton of cameras!
Who knows where our pictures end up ..I know the OC Register was there and I believe Surfline takes pix .. Along with various blogs etc..etc...
Awards are handed out and everyone who participates gets a T shirt!
See following pix . Better than words !
Wicked witch, Foxy Cleopatra,Miley Cyrus and yours truly
Tonto and Lone Ranger
Eat your heart out Miley...twerking while surfing with a wrecking ball.. Now THATS talent !
Above the 2 best costumes winners and two of my favorite girls;-)! Che and Bridget!
Larry as the wicked witch.. Ruby red slippers and all!
This is a candid shot which shows how stoked I was ... Even though surf was beyond crowded! FYI I was wearing a bikini and rash guard and was not cold while surfing .. But it hit me when I got out!
One of my favorite couples won best couple costume .. Peanut Butter and Jelly and got to give props to lil puff the magic dragon ;-)
A whole family of Hot Doggers!!

Above a few pix of the festivities!
Then we had the Wahine Kai event at Bolsa the next day.. A smaller yet just as fun event!
Here are those pictures :-)
I didn't surf long this day .. My pants kept comming off & I was exhausted from the night before and 3 times I stepped on something slimey and wiggly .. My guess sting rays ... I was over it after that.. Speaking of sting rays.. Greg who was surfing with us did get hit.. But thankfully not bad.
This time I wore a wetsuit under my Jammie's! And I was saying waaaah!
After a weekend of fun filled surf Festivities.. I was wiped out! But I'm already planning for next year!
