The Timeless Allure Of Cory Lopez And Sunny Florida Wedges
The Lopez fam chase two swells East to West through the Most Embarrassing State In The Union!!
As we’ve been swept up in putting together these retrospective features with our current Guest Editor, Matt Biolos, it’s been easy to slip down rabbit holes, and find yourself a few hours later having burned through much of the …Lost Archive, from What’s Really Goin’ On through to 5’5″ 19 1/4 Redux.
And one thing you will be hit over the head with over and over again is just how fucking good Cory and Shea Lopez were for kids that, as Pat O’Connell so lovingly says, “grew up surfing knee high Gulf Coast.”
Well, imagine our delight amidst all this gazing in the rearview, to get a clip from Cory, himself, set to the Misfits “Come back,” and filmed over the last few swells near his home in Ponce, as well as sandbars north, by none other than Jason Hatch and Jeffrey O’Neil, and with some cameos from Cory’s kin, young Luke getting a few drainers!
Click in for some summer wedges that’ll make you melt!
