The Inertia

Any time there’s an East Coast swell event, it would seem Cape Hatteras’ resident tube hunter extraordinaire, Mr. Brett Barley, is on it. (If you care to get vicariously barreled 11 times, see here. Oh, and four barrels in one wave here.)

Well, when Winter Storm Riley tickled the East Coast – much to the chagrin of most of us still waiting for the Pacific to awaken – Brett made the call to venture nine hours north through the night and get a taste of “Newmibia.” The visit was especially fitting because Brett’s one of a fairly exclusive group to have actually surfed Namibia’s Skeleton Bay.



Only the best. We promise.
