For the second weekend in a row, The Totally Crustaceous Tour was bombed with a large Northwest swell. After giant closeout barrels at the Seaslug in Hermosa Pier last weekend, they headed up north for the Goldfish Surf Series Stop #2 at Pismo Pier and ran into some more smacking surf.

At first light on the morning of 16th December Pismo Pier, California, looked unrideable with huge 8-10 ft. closeouts, but the kids were fired up and repeatedly yelling "Lets do this". So after a quick check on the buoy report, they discovered the swell was quickly on the decrease. The green heat flag was raised, sounded the starting horn and The Goldfish Surf Series was off and running.

The Groms were fired up early and when Santa Claus showed up and surprised them they went crazy, kicking, punching and pouring anything they could find on him for prizes. Their crazy amount of energy didn't stop on the beach either.

Out in the water they were going nuts on this little reform left that pealed into the South side of the pier. They were like little energized action figures beating this little left to a pulp. In the Grom final, it was Christian Ramirez who locking into all the right waves.

Being goofy foot and surfing the pier every day paid off as he found himself in the winners circle opening up early Christmas present which consisted of Guitar Hero II, a cool Volcom stocking trophy, huge amounts of Dakine accessories, and bag full of other goodies. Taking a respectable second was Josh Printup, with Shawn Burns, John Wilson, Nick Taron and Kyle Dillard rounding out the final.

In the Girls final, Hayley Cameron started off strong with a solid first wave. Answering back with an impressive score of her own was Rachel Harris, who was trying to defend her victory from the first event at the Rock. She was hungry for the win, but couldn’t find a second scoring wave and had to settle for second.

Hayley earned herself the win along with a Zoo York Skate deck and whole mountain of other goodies. Rounding out the rest of the final was Daisy Meady, KK Cobb, Amy Covert, and Karin Grumckraw. The Juniors Final was a stacked heat of up and coming kids on the Central Coast. Brandon Barnes had the highest score of the heat, but couldn't muster up another high scoring wave and wound up in second.

Robert Curtis surfed smooth and consistent threw the final and when the horn sounded he found himself winning his Second Goldfish event in a row. Santa Claus loaded him up with an H20 Audio Ipod housing, Santa Cruz skate deck and Volcom backpack of other goodies. Matt Gallagher, Matt Johnson, Kokoro Tomatsuri and Ashton Madeley rounded out the final.

The Pro-Am final was a mix of talent from Santa Barbara to Santa Cruz. Local long time stand out Walter Cerney knows Pismo Pier better than anyone and was hungry for a win after a close second at the last event at the Rock. Walt showed the boys how its done with a high scoring ride in the first few minutes, but Nate Tyler and Blake Howard quickly answered back to Walt's opening wave.

The three traded off the lead threw out the final and when the horn sounded it was Blake edging out the two by half a point. Blake scored $500 cash Christmas spending money along with a grip of other goodies. Rounding out the final was Nate Tyler, Walter Cerney, Teddy Travers, Calder Deyerle and Trevor Hischer.
