Toes on the Noes

OCEANSIDE — Despite some texture and tough waves at the south side of the Oceanside Pier, surfers were still able to get in a few good rides and show what they could do on their longboards. The Oceanside Longboard Surfing Club hosted its annual surf competition and 15th annual Guy Takayama Pro Noseriding and Pro Open event the weekend of Aug. 7 through Aug. 9.
