The Inertia

Ain’t hurricane swells grand? Hurricane Frank was good to the Wedge, that’s for certain. It’s a wave that loves a good bump in activity, and those who call the Wedge their local spot are a little different than surfers anywhere else. Making it out of a wave is less of a priority there — perhaps because, when it’s big it’s a little more unlikely — and the focus instead is placed on the scant few seconds inside a tube or that pit in your stomach making a giant drop.

Watch above as surfers, bodyboarders, kneeboarders, and body surfers do their very best to wrangle the warping weirdness that Hurricane Frank dealt the Wedge.


Only the best. We promise.
