Cosmic Creek 2010 Highlights

The tenth annual Cosmic Creek Surf Festival brought more funky vintage surfing to the beach than you could shake a mustache at. The event took place on October 30th and 31st at Salt Creek, which was overrun with retro fish and single fins for the fall's most far out surfing competition. Below are the cosmic champions of each division and photo highlights:
