Lee Wilson and Chris Ward Put On A Clinic At Desert Point
A single day of perpetual funnelling.
At a wave like Desert Point, many of us would be floundering like the foreground gent at 3:15, but if you're Lee Wilson or Chris Ward, you're bossing down the line of steam trains. "To me, Chris Ward in the water is like Basquiat on a canvas," says Lee. "A raw and unpredictable approach with an end product that one could stare at over and over again. He has been coming to Desert point for years. I was over here to surf this special wave on a Chilli Fader that I pulled off the rack, a board that I have grown quite fond of. This was my third time to Desert Point and the first time I've ever surfed it offshore. I hit up Wardo to see if he was down to collaborate on a piece. He was more than happy to. We went surfing, Carlo (Coral) documented. I've surfed some pretty good lefts in my life but nothing that comes close to this. A trip that was meant to be three days was cut short to one due to a wave driving my feet into the reef. This is what happened."
