C.O.L.D. Crew Secret Sandbar Mini Simmons Test Session

What Up Surfriders , I was joined by my fellow C.O.L.D. Crew members Bailey Webb and Trey Womble for a Mini Simmons test session on Wednesday . The 3 class rejects took their tattoos and stupid looking , failed surfboard designs to a secret sandbar to avoid heckling and rock throwing from the status qoe . Just like a good detention hall , the rejects had a blast , as carving madness ensued. If you haven't tried a displacement hull yet , you owe to yourself to feel the speed . Carve Or Look Dumb , Zog

P.S. No Jocks , Nerds , or Prom Quenn Sweepers were harmed , as no boards over 6' were ridden.

Free Your Mind

Yo Surfriders , Got some pretty strange looks surfing the mini in macking Hatteras . The chop tails work. Check out this hybrid. I caught some of the biggest and best waves I've caught in the last couple years riding sub 6 footer. Dave Vernor is the man , his constant testing shows through as this board rips 6 " to 6 ' , Zog

Surfed super fun chest to head first jetty , with Melissa , Bret Barley and some other pro [ they were ripping backside aerial 360's ] . No one around , a couple of guys paddled out at end of session. Most everything is closed , finally saw a couple kiters & windsurfers as Canadian Hole parking lot has been empty. Locals say road to open in 10 more days, come support OBX this fall as our friends need our help. Zog

Hatteras is Honking

Yo Surfriders, Hope you caught somewhere today , we are in Hatteras . Holy crap it's BIG and offshore . Only took this picture before paddling out this afternoon , thinking I would get some shots with the Go Pro . Ducked dived first wave of set , as next one hammered me so fucking hard it completely sheared camera off its mount and made me say my prayers. Good thing for the little leash , as kept camera undamaged { except for tab } . 2 sessions of a life time , solid 6 foot swell , 10 foot plus faces with double overhead monster tubes. Had a blast as Melissa charged it and caught a few bombs. Been a long time since set wave ran a chill up my spine like today , Zog
