Photo Booth: Remembering October 2013

In a year of mediocre surf, mid October proved to be the highlight of the 2013 Fall season (so far). On October 9, the swell peaked with out of control conditions but quickly cleaned up for 2-3 solid days of surf. The photos below are picked from a handful of some of the best photographers in the area who didn’t miss this much needed pulse from the Atlantic. Photographers include: Bob Hovey, Ben Gallop, Stacey Hinkle and The WildLyfe. enjoy
