GABE HAD SEARCHED 25 YEARS FOR THAT WAVE!
And loved every minute of the ride even though he was snowballed at least 8 times in the one barrel. The perfect wave was courtesy of Hurricane Marie, which brought an unusual summer swell to Santa Barbara.
Gabe Venturelli went out in the early morning to Sandspit Beach to see what the surf was like and lucked out with the wave he had been looking out for over 25 years. Other surfers had brutal falls, hoots and hollers – but it was mad, made excellent conditions for surfing and gave waves which make surfing worthwhile.
