Bobby Okvist in the Southern Juice, The Wedge, CA

You’d be hard-pressed to find Bobby Okvist absent from a pumping day at his beloved Wedge. Photographer Luke Forgay recalls, “I got to The Wedge early on Sunday and was hoping for some massive sets to start rolling through. I waited on the sand all morning hoping it would clean up, but it really didn’t until the lifeguards started calling everybody out of the water for the blackball. Terrible timing! That’s when Bobby grabbed this wave. It was the best wave of the morning, hands down. He’s always on it when the right ones come through.”
Bobby will admit it wasn’t the run-of-the-mill day at The Wedge. “The period was so long that it was hard to tell when the waves were gonna break. I missed a few good ones before this because they kept breaking further out than I expected them to. So, I moved outside a bit farther when this came through, and still barely had enough room to turn and go. It was a really fun drop.”
