The boys love to go to Cisco Beach on Nantucket Island to surf and see the beautiful people

“Wake up,” I said to the boys on the day of the Nantucket Ozone Classic, a surf competition that was founded in honor of the late David “Ozone” Ozias who died in June of 2001 at the young age of thirty. David seems to have been one of those humble guys who was loved by many and who may have shied away from having a surf competition named after him.

I was in a hurry to get to the beach and be part of the true Nantucket scene with oiled up teens intently watching the surf and cheering in the 120 surfing competitors.

Divisions were divided up based on age, sex and board style and surfers were given a 15 minute block of time to surf and were judged by a panel of local experts.

The swell was the best they had seen in three years, albeit somewhat small, but they were tricky and the surfers had to be selective on what waves to choose to earn high scores.

Below are my photos…oh how I wish I had a longer lens.
