NSSA Regional Championship Practice And More

On Tuesday I had planned to visit the northern beaches to see the waves and hopefully photograph some of the surfers there. But when I looked at Surfline, the waves were somewhere around 1-3 feet, which is pretty flat. But then I saw that The Wedge was consistently 8-10 feet! I had to see what […]
