Chasing Hurricane Dolores to Newport Beach

Chasing Hurricane Surf

Reports of waves heading to the Southern California coast stemming from Hurricane Dolores sent us down south in hopes of scoring so long awaited surf. ¬†Watching to forecast we could tell that this swell was not going to be big enough to push the Wedge alive, so we played it safe and hit north Newport Beach instead. ¬†Unfortunately the south winds started blowing early, giving a choppy texture to the surface. ¬†The waves were still better than anything we’ve seen lately so Chris Wells, Noah Collins, Nate Yeomans, Colin Eric,Marley Puglielli, Tomas Tudela, Shaun Burrell, Trever Challenor and others went out and charged the lefts.
