It's that time of year again! I love Autumn great weather ... Offshores... Nice waves ... Still warm water and less crowds! But what I look forward too are the Halloween  Surfs.. This year I participated in the Blackies crew event and Wahine Kai.
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! 
I surfed as a baby doll

We all pitched in and did a potluck! I brought smoked salmon with all the fixings and it was a hit! 
The dish we brought

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! 
Just a small portion of the crowd

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! 
Official T shirt

See following pix . Better than words !
Wicked witch, Foxy Cleopatra,Miley Cyrus and yours truly
Tonto and Lone Ranger
Foxy and I sharing a wave..yes she surfed in those boots!
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!
Ok who could be afraid of this cute shark?
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!!
Part of the group shot

Above a few pix of the festivities!
Our local dogs got into the "Howloween" spirit too!

Then we had the Wahine Kai event at Bolsa the next day.. A smaller yet just as fun event!
Here are those pictures :-)

Group shot.. But missing a few
This time I wore a wetsuit under my Jammie's! And I was saying waaaah!
Laurie who won best wipeout

Here comes Wonder Woman!! 
Karen who won most waves
And the elegant Valerie who won most stylish.. She never lost that long cigarette the whole time !! 
Cynthia had a head full of Green Snakes.. I'm not sure what happen to them., but I wouldn't mess with medusa .. With or without the snakes ;-)

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.

After a weekend of fun filled surf Festivities.. I was wiped out! But I'm already planning for next year!
