The Inertia

We arrived at Puerto Escondido amped. The swell had just arrived and it was like nothing I’ve ever seen before. Wide, sandy beach and a never-ending supply of barrels. The diversity of wave options on this small stretch of beach is something out of a fairy tale, where legendary surfers like Coco Nogales, and Andrew Matthews toy with triple overhead beasts. Watching the waves for hours on end would put you in a trance, and if you listened close enough, you can almost hear the waves begin to sing.

It was a real pleasure traveling to Puerto Escondido and seeing this wild wave with my own two eyes. There are only a few places on earth that host such an incredible wave, and I’d encourage all of you to begin that search for yours.


Only the best. We promise.
