Watch: A Microdose Of Vissla’s Cosmic Creek Weekend
A look at all the fun you missed in Dana Point at the 20th Annual Retro Shred Fest.
For both days of Vissla’s Cosmic Creek Retro Shred Fest, Orange County shone very bright indeed, the warmest day of the summer so far, and some workable sets being taken apart by a hundred or so single-and twin-fin wielding warriors.
Click into the edit above for a look at the weekend’s festivities, which saw shaping demos, beachfront espresso, BBQ, and natural tie-dying, a full set from Tops and The Night Beats, and Jason Bennet and Kevin Schulz running away with the coveted Creators and Innovators crown.
