The ASP Longboard Pro Surf Tour arrived in Huanchaco a few days ago. They pretty much took over the entire beach for 4 days while the competition raged.
Our good friends Lauren and Julio were commissioned to do the event poster a couple of months ago. It was fun to watch the entire process. First they did the painting on canvas, then they scanned it into their computer and built the poster. The original painting is absolutely sick! You can see it in the photo below. Just image it without all the sponsor logos and writing.
They also designed the poster for the event’s big Saturday night party, the biggest of the year in Huanchaco!
I watched a few heats of the event here and there, but the swell was really small by pro standards so it wasn’t all that exciting.
I prefer to surf myself instead of just watch, and since the crowds were all down by the pier there was nobody out in front of the house!
The party was huge. They had 4 live bands followed by a DJ who kept the party going until 6am. No, we didn’t make it until the end. My only goal was to outlast Lost World.
Below, Sprinter Life and Lost World Expedition set up a procrastination station outside of the concert.
Kiki and Mongo partying well past their curfew
Mongo has become ridiculously protective over the Sprinter Life Pack. Anywhere we go he sets up a 20 foot perimeter and attacks any dog who tries to enter our space. He also won’t let any big guys in, and definitely nobody running, so joggers beware. After pinning 2 dogs to the pavement by the neck, Stevie devised this new Mongo control system.
Somebody please tell me how I got signed up for this again…???
This is my favorite picture of this post. I call it…
It’s been fun having the event in town, but I’m looking forward to them leaving now. Especially considering we have an over head swell on the way. Pretty stoked!
Drew, can I get some wax?
