SANTA CRUZ, Calif. –
Santa Cruz surfing legend Anthony Ruffo, 48, is out of the ocean and in a jail cell serving a two-year sentence for selling methamphetamine.
Ruffo has been in jail for less than a month, but he has already created waves inside the Santa Cruz County Jail’s Watsonville facility on Rountree Lane.
The well-known surfer posed for several photos inside the jail with fellow inmates. They are all sporting jail-issued inmate pants with “Santa Cruz County Jail” printed down the side.
Ruffo’s friend uploaded the photos onto the surfer’s Facebook wall.
Hundreds of Facebook users responded with comments, including one of the most influential skateboarders of all time, Jay Adams.
“Smile Ruffo the waves will be there. I had to wait 3 1/2 years last time. Love ya hommie,” Adams wrote.
