We've seen plenty of waves ridden at the Surf Ranch, but never the world's most stylish longboarders lit up under stadium lights, as they were during the Cuervo Surf Ranch Classic.
Bringing a handful of the best loggers to Lemoore, the unique event saw some of them pull the jersey back on for the first time since last year. It also meant that a rich, deep history of style ran up against the cutting edge of surf technology -- and as you can see, the results were stunning.
We're used to thinking of the wave at The Ranch as a canvass for performance and progression, but it's clear that the consistent perfection which is on tap can also bring out the best in the classic, soulful expression of traditional longboarding.
Just as that racing, hollow wall allows a shortboarder to try almost anything, on repeat, it's also just right for a pitch-perfect trim and extended tip time. Tune in to watch all the action on Sunday, October 18th at 5pm ET.
