The Matagorda Open Presented by POCO PLAYA RESTAURANT was called on for November 14th/15th!
In spite of the cooler temperature, sunny skies made for a beautiful weekend for all the competitors and family.
The contest was held at the head of the beach access road, north of the pier. Surf was breaking in the waist to head high range, dumping hard on the sandbar, with a swift current moving south down the beach creating challenging but very fun conditions for the competitors
