Gareth Budge is from Coffs Harbour, Australia and was visiting friend, Brad Gerlach in Los Angeles, CA. We set out in the morning to El Porto in Hermosa Beach. The waves definitely weren’t Pipeline, but that didn’t stop Gareth from showing us how to abuse these smaller sets with his black MISFIT board (one of his sponsors).
The waves didn’t stand a chance, they were bruised and battered by the time Gareth was finished. We may be seeing a lot more of Gareth around here in 2016.
