The Inertia

You’ve seen the pros at The Surf Ranch for years. We all know how they surf it, how they look on the wave itself, and how easy they make something look when it’s pumping out carbon copy after carbon copy of the same barrel. And whether we recognize it or not, those images shape our perception of that wave and how we imagine ourselves on it.

But what does Kelly’s look like when a bunch of Average Joes hit it?

I recently got invited to join a group of non-professional surfers to shoot a session at The Ranch and jumped at the opportunity. It was fun to see the wave surfed by regular, everyday surfers for once — something that isn’t showcased very often.
