A loose knit group of central coast watermen with just about every personality defect in the book. These misfits gather annually in the dead of winter at “the Rock” in Morro Bay to charge harrowing conditions – and they call this fun. After this event, most slip back into surfing’s shadows until called upon to volunteer for various water based charities for which they always show up in mass.
