Surfers young and old gathered at El Porto Beach early Wednesday morning for a bit of fun at the Jimmy Miller Surf Fiesta. Proceeds from the annual event benefit the Jimmy Miller Memorial Foundation, a non-profit that teaches healing through surfing and ocean-related activities.
Participants were split into color-coded teams with the objective of getting all team members to successfully catch a wave.
"The surfing has been strong all the way from the little kids to the older guys," said Keith Whitmer, a surf judge.
An evening after-party featuring an auction and awards was held at Sangria in Hermosa Beach.
