Grab your fins! Or don’t, if you prefer to stand waist deep and finless in the womp zone. Either way, board-free surfing is one of my favorite ways to get wet when the water warms up. During the summers of my late teens (a hell of long time ago now) my friends and I spent a lot more time womping our favorite summer spots than we did riding our boards.
Ever since then I make it a point to get back down to these spots during the warm crowded months. But after watching this Mark Cunningham clip from 1982, I may not be able to wait until summertime. I think I may need to dust off the Duck Feet sooner than later. I never fail to have a blast when feeling that direct connection to the ocean’s energy. I may sound like a hippy, but you know what I’m talking about.
