this is your chance... - This wave is great, two barrel sections, waves from 2 feet to 10 feet, perfection, plenty of take off spots to spread people out, it's always the go on a trip, gotta see it. Want to see it uncrowded? Come in december, jan, or feb. There are waves with no crowds, it's also alot cheaper than you'd normally pay. Want to try something outside the box? There are places you've never heard of no matter how many mags you read...let's go check them out. I'm offering this deal for a limited time: name your time, place and price....
