Bumps appear on the horizon growing into rideable, rippable walls. Bumps are obstacles in your path as you negotiate a crowded peak. Bumps are the choppy texture on the face of a wave when winds and tide hit it. "BUMPS" is a compilation of surfing segments shot between San Francisco and Santa Cruz over the past 5 years. It highlights many aspects of surfing in the areas, including many of the best surfers in the area doing contests (Uncle Dicks, Mavs, SCLU, and Big Chill), facing heavy conditions of fall and winter surfing epic waves at OB and Mavs, to the falls and wipeouts when things don't go right, to groms and ordinary surfers enjoying clean conditions, easy waves and hoots in the lineup,.

The cove is big and gnarly to start day 1. Conditions vary throughout and as competitors make the most of it. The competition at all levels was only surpassed by the comradery of spectators and supporters. This video includes highlights of mens proam, Grom, young mens and longboards. Sorry, missed the most of the womens heats.
Having a contest at the Lane can be really fun. Especially with an overhead swell and sunny blue skies. Just out with a few of your good friends.
Ok, so those friends want to take you out. The great part is an excellent day of lane waves and a high level of longboard excellence.
