Noah Wegrich Rises Above The Turbulence, California
"By the end of the session he'd buckled his board and smashed his elbow, but was psyched to find more."
"It was the first day in a while the swell wasn't bombing and everyone was flocking to their dependable reefbreaks," said lensman Teddy Miller. "Noah Wegrich insisted on surfing alone at this fickle left wedge. It's a seaglass beach, not a surf spot, a closeout to the average set of eyes, but Noah somehow turned that into massive airs, and fun little barrels. This was actually the first wave Waggy caught while I was there. He stomped this one, and a handful of others, into a few inches of water. By the end of the session he'd buckled his board and smashed his elbow, but was psyched to find more."
