Uploaded: December 02, 2007


Around sunset, a skilled surfer takes advantage of nature's gifts at the Rincon in Southern California.

This is our local surfer Bobby Martinez who was Rookie of the Year last year in the elite ASP World Tour which features the top 44 surfers in the world surfing the best waves all over the world.
