COMPETITORS WHO ARE SURFING THE SOUTHWEST OPEN SEASON #10:
We are having the final OPEN Season event at Uppers this weekend. The State Park has asked that the competitors and their families try to stay on the pathway to the contest site. Just as you come out of the Uppers’ trestle, there are nesting birds right on the sand. The birds are the snowy plover and least tern. Both are endangered birds and on the federal endangered species list (meaning they are protected). The least tern is a small bird and has already been seen nesting at Uppers and
