Surfers from all generations gathered in Surfside this weekend for the first annual Sunset Sixties contest, a specialty event in which riders could only compete on boards from the 1960s. Sound cool? Yeah it does. Yes it was.

The judging was based on style, length of ride and all that other stylish stuff from the 1960s so it's no surprise that local boy Scotty Stopnik took the win and a custom Tim Stamps surfboard, along with other winners who scored trophies for Best 60s style, Best Nose Ride, Best Wipeout, Best Cutback, Best Off The Top, and the always popular Best Barrel. Of course whoever brought the Best Board won an original oil painting by Rick Blake entitled "Dropknee Cutback"! Not bad.

The Sunset 60s was the second stop of the The Triple Crown of Retro Surfing, that includes the Surfside 70s, Sunset 60s and HB 80s event happening sometime soon. Stay tuned to the next Ghetto Juice for event photos and official results.
