“I just want people to experience the real surf culture,” Hotdogger organizer Eddie Solt said of the contest held Saturday at the Hermosa Beach Pier. The competition level was high, but the good feelings even higher.
The weather, swell and tides all cooperated for the Subaru Pacific Hotdoggers Longboard Contest at the Hermosa Beach pier on Saturday. As for shape, that would have been asking for too much.
The Hermosa Beach Hotdoggers surf contest rules were old school. Competitors were required to compete on single fins boards with no leashes and no interference rules.
