Wavecrest - 2009 Encinitas

On Saturday, September 19 I attended Wavecrest 2009 in Encinitas, CA. This year is the 30th anniversary of Wavecrest, the largest all Woodies gathering. I wasn't able to get a booth there this year but the Hagerty bags were floating around thanks to Dan Close, one of the organizers of the event and a true Hagerty fan! I also wanted to give a special thanks to the San Diego Woodies for another fantastic show.
Wavescrest is held on Moonlight Beach in Encinitas. There couldn't be a better location for an all Woodies show where over 280 woodies gathered in the parking lot this year. I have been told and experienced that participants at Wavecrest spend the day admiring the wood, swapping stories, surfing and barbecuing. The event begins at 7am and is officially over at 3:30 p.m., but the die-hard Woodie owners hang out at Moonlight Beach until past sunset. Mark your calenders for next year my friends.

The view from my parking spot!

Down on the sand before walking up the hill to the event.

One of the many paintings being sold! I think a die hard fan made this one.

One of the "coolest" pieces of marketing material I have received at a show.

A 1933 Rolls Royce, I have never seen a Rolls like this.

A 1957 Morris Minor aka girlie Woodie! All the women loved this one....

How many surfboards can you fit on this Woodie?

I love my job!

Surfboards...just another day in paradise!
