We all know that feeling and it’s been slowly creeping in the past week in Central California. Peaks groomed by offshore winds, dimmer glows at sunrise, and suddenly that 4/3 you bought at the beginning of September is starting to feel just right.
One could say Fall is rising and surfers Austin Smith-Ford, Nicholas Hdez, Kyle Buthman, Noah Wegrich and Noi Kaulukukui are up for the challenge, sometimes while wearing a hood. Together, they found a gem of a wave and shared some turns, airs, and a barrel or two one fine day. Watch their session in the video below, filmed by Perry Gershkow.
