img_5647x.jpgThe results are in from the 2008 Best in the West competition and the Rookies have retained their spot on top of Cali’s dk food chain for yet another year. Thanks to sponsors Surfride, Custom-X, Morey, Toobs, Esteem and 5-South for making this event happen. Overall it was a great event with fun waves, quality riding, and a chill vibe. We’ve got some pictures and a write-up posted in our newest version of etcetera.
