Wavecrest: The Grand Daddy of all Woodie Meets


This is it …… Wavecrest, the granddaddy of all woodie meets. At Moonlight Beach at the end of Encinitas Blvd in Encinitas, CA you will experience the longest-running and largest gathering of woodies in the world. Woodies begin arriving in the wee hours and by 8:00 am there are around 300 woodies of every size, shape, and description on display. Throughout the day there is Hawaiian and surf music performed live, along with fabulous raffle prizes and awards for the best of the best. Wavecrest merchandise and food will be available at the event. We have done this shoot in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2021 and 2022, and it is always great fun.

More about the Event here:

This will be a very crowded event, so I have scheduled for us to meet early at 7:00 AM at the corner of C Street and 4th Street at the entrance of the parking lot overlooking the beach. We will meet each other and do the group photo there. Due to the nature of the event, it will be very difficult for us to stay together. We can therefore shoot in small groups. At this time there are no plans for a group breakfast yet.

What to bring: Wide angle or medium zoom lenses. Walking shoes. Circular Polarizers. Sun Protection. Knee Pads and/or Level for your Camera.
