Jay Hicks from United States
“I tried to paddle out on a overhead day and not one , not two but three guys actually had hand guns out in the line up localizing the crowd. Literally hand guns in what looked like ziplock freezer bags hidden in their wetsuits. I watched them pull out the bags open them up and shoot at a group of guys apparently the group that was getting shot at wasn’t from Hueneme. After the shooting took place the local packing the guns paddled in and proceeded to smash car windows and vandalized the groups trucks with spray paint. They wrote “HUENEME PIER LOCALS” and “NO FAT GIRLS”
And what looked to say “”DEEDS-IGLU-DECKER-LARO” it wasn’t really readable from where I was at because I stayed in the water until the cops came. I will not be surfing this beach again ever.”
