Anthony Ruffo: 1986, other days... | Photo: Chris Klopf

Big wave surfer Anthony Ruffo was arrested at his house in possession of more than an ounce of near-pure methamphetamine.

Ruffo had already had problems with drugs in 2004. At that time, he pleaded guilty to felony meth possession. Earlier, in 1998, Anthony Ruffo was charged with possessing of marijuana for sale and attended anti-drug programs.

The 46-year-old surfer from Santa Cruz appears in the documentary "The Westsiders", a film about the surfing gang of Steamer Lane.

Before the police entered Ruffo's house, a young woman tried to flush methamphetamine down the toilet.

Rob Bain, Layne Beachley, and Dave Macaulay have taken out the Azores Airlines World Masters Championship in the Grand Masters, Women's Masters and Men's Masters divisions held in good three-foot surf at Praia de Santa Barbara.
