12 Gallop

Photos from October 10th Swell (thanks Ben Gallop)

October 10 was without a doubt a great day to be a surfer on the Outer Banks. A nice fall swell pushed in and provided a full day of epic surf up and down the banks. Offshore winds, chest to head+ high waves and perfect fall weather were the perfect recipe.

Ben Gallop shares his view of the day with surfers Ryan Brown, Thomas Bruce, Willie Etheridge, Youssef Akazdir, Bradley Carey, John Eric Cleaver and Ralph Cleaver

About the Author


BrentGrowing up as a kid in Virginia Beach, Brent has always been surrounded by water. Sailing, surfing, fishing and skateboarding were his passions and foundation that drew him near the ocean. He attended Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA and graduated with a Bachelor's in Communication Arts & Design. Having worked at several companies in Richmond as an Art Director, and living away from the ocean for about 10 years, he and his wife decided to make the move back East with their sights on the Outer Banks. With surfing being his favorite hobby, the Outer Banks was a perfect fit. In 2005, Brent headed back to a more familiar and welcoming beach community and now lives in Kill Devil Hills with his wife and 3 daughters. Brent has run a Graphic Design business (BN Design & Advertising) for over 15 years. Complimenting his Design business during the day, Brent is also a musician and plays gigs regularly on the Outer Banks and is also a board member of the Surfrider Foundation, Outer Banks Chapter.View all posts by Brent →
