Another holiday, another hangover. Its an old Pismo adage that applied itself again in 2013. With kids, marriages, and general family obligations starting to dominate as the crew gets a year older, carving out time to get together with the local sponge crew is becoming more of a daunting task – especially this time of year. But with everyone back in town for the holiday and the waves typically above par in the mid-winter season, its also usually the best time of year to have an excuse to get together. Here is the first round of media from this year’s hangover.
