Transworld SURF Cali Rally 09. The Rally is basically a scavenger hunt with 4 teams (consisting of Pro or almost Pro Surfers) who have to complete a bunch of challenges to earn points. The Team with the most points at the end wins a prize from Transworld Surf.

Surf Ride let me out of the web office for a few days, and the past 2 weeks have been heavy. TWSURF added me to team …Lost as the trip photographer for this years Cali Rally. Little did I know what kind of mayhem I signed up for.

Led by our fearless leader Ryan ‘Simmo’ Simmons, team members Dylan Melamed, Luke Rife, Josh Stone and Chucky Rigano meandered their way up the CA coastline leaving a wake of laughs. Surf Ride’s Team Manager Chris Abad was involved, racking up points for team Reef.

The challenges were off the wall. Some of the best were punting at Ponto, team run the track at Del Mar Raceway, fruitbowl the train at Lowers, TWS tattoos, surfing the Lane naked, boob signings, surf like a swami at Swami’s, and getting lost in the woods of Santa Cruz. Checkpoint challenges were every other day conisting of a surf contest at Del Mar, Hooters Wing Eating competition, Electric Dodge Ball Disaster, Volcom Shirtless Paintball at an army base, Sector 9 skate race down Hollywood Blvd, and a Surf Tech paddle battle at Capitola Pier. Although team …Lost probably racked up fewer points than Analog or Billabong, there is no doubt that we had more fun.

Thanks to …Lost and TWSurf for good times and a chance to be a part of the Cali Rally. Thanks to Surf Ride for letting me back into the office.
