As is now a three-decade tradition, Herbie Fletcher sounded the alarm this afternoon on the North Shore, assembling his annual Wave Warriors photo shoot at the RVCA Pipe house the same as he has since the first WW shoot in ’86. 

Answering the call and donning this year’s iconic Wave Warriors tee were the entirety of the Fletcher, Florence, Ho, and Rothman clans, as well as everyone from Danny Fuller, Dustin Barca and Kaimana Henry to Joel Tudor and JOB, Alex Knost, Shane Beschen, Kai Lenny Jay Davies, and more.

Scroll through the gallery above and below, shot by Sam Moody, for a look at this year’s heavy-hitting Wave Warriors roster.
