La Yerbabuena Open of SUP (and Surf)

If you can appreciate the very good SUP surfing that took place at The Yerbabuena Open of SUP (and Surf) earlier this month, you can appreciate the very good conventional surfing that shares this clip. In case you’re not familiar, the inaugural competition of Spanish origin is held at La Yerbabuena, a playful looking righthand pointbreak in the tiny town of Barbate, Cádiz, Spain. From the looks of it, Spain is successfully bridging the social gap between SUP and surfing, or at least it has the two getting along well enough to share the same contest. Southern California could sure learn a thing or two from that camaraderie.
