On Base: The Point Mugu Surf Contest

Photos by William Sharp

The third annual Point Mugu Surf Contest Presented by Quiksilver went off in Ventura in, on and above five-foot peaky tubes and ramps. Local heroes, military heroes, friends and family congregated for what’s fast become a unique and beloved event. Don’t be jealous because you can’t go surf here — these guys and girls deserve every bit of it.
