Old School Surfing
By Tom Modugno of Goleta Surfing
A group of photos appeared on my phone recently and the classic style and feel of them jumped out at me.
They were of our good friend and Goleta legend, Turtle, (Jeremy Castillo), shredding some fun waves this summer.
This is what surfing is all about. Skill, finesse, freedom, style.
It just made me realize, the more things change, the more they stay the same...
These photos could have been taken at the same place, 50 years ago. (Except for the wetsuit and goofy kayaker in the background)
In these days of Costco boards and wave machines, there ain't nothing like the real thing baby. Turtle on a real board, made by a real human, at a real beach, with waves made by God this summer 2018.
Turtle learned to surf on the shores of Goleta and he swears by his Wayne Rich boards.
Just goes to show ya, style never goes out of style.
