Vans Pier Classic 2009

On Wednesday, I headed to Huntington Beach with my mom aka Angry Nana or Angry Grandma. She was actually in a good mood. I had a laundry list of things I wanted to do in HB, and she went along.

We parked in the parking structure on Main St. I hate parking in structures with my huge SUV. The Angry Toddler is kind of hard to park in those tiny spots. I also have a history of hitting parked cars, in my work vehicle, not the Angry Tahoe. We wandered around the shops on Main St. We also stopped for some yummy food at Wahoo's. I swear I eat at Wahoo's like 2-3 times a week.

We then headed towards the beach. I knew that there was a surfing competition, Vans Pier Classic 2009. I follow Vans on Twitter, and some other companies. They have been talking about the competition for the past few days. It was a beautiful day in HB. The weather was perfect although the waves were a little flat. My camera was rocking though. I'm finding the my camera is really working great outdoors lately. I'm getting some perfect shots. I really like going to these Action Sports Events and taking some candid photos. I even opened a Flickr account the other day. I'm going to post some of my better photos there.

I really need to get some photo software for my new MacBook. I'm just using the basic iPhoto right now to edit. I need some recommendations for photo editing software. I would love to get Adobe CS4 or something like that, but unfortunately that's the price of my car payment.

Here are some of my candid shots. Enjoy!


  1. I've been a bad commenter too!

    Love these shots. I haven't been to Cali in years, we're due for a vacation!

  2. NO place I would rather be. Love Love Love Surf City.


Thank You for taking the time to comment on my blog. I really appreciate it. At least I know that someone in my life actually agrees with me.
