The Cosmic Creek event celebrated it's 16th year at Salt Creek Beach in Dana Point, California.

The retro-style surf experience paying homage to more experimental time of the 1970’s.  "A place where surfboards ruled the shops, when shapers were gurus, and surfing had a mystical soul about it." For the surf heats, Vissla supplied original 70’s and 80’s single and twin fin options for competitors to choose from, while the Creators and Innovators division consists of local shapers from San Clemente to Ventura.

New to the event this year was a BodySurf Expression Session brought to you byDaFiN - featuring Jedi.. Mark Cunningham and apprentice, Kane Wilcox. 

Local photographer Roly Gomezaka @Rolythethird on Instagram was there to capture some of the highlights from the day & shares with us the vibe of the photos.

Rob Machado Surfing Game Face

Rob Machado's game face is definitely one to be reckoned with.  When he's on land, it's all smiles though.
