Photo Gallery: “January 13 Swell” – Mike Leech Photography

January has been one flat spell of a month until last Monday (January 13, 2020). The swell kicked in and provided some fun clean barrels for a few lucky surfers.... and one unlucky one who was bitten by a shark in Rodanthe. Warm water and fishing boats nearby probably played a large part of why things got a little sharky. Otherwise, business as usual for some frothy locals who scored some fun waves with hardly a soul in sight. Here's a bunch of shots taken by Mike Leech. Surfers include: Corey Lopez, Dallas Tolson, Ian Saymour, Jesse Hines, Noah Wegrich, Quentin Turko, Sterling King and Will Deane.     Here's what Brett Barley had to say about surfing over the weekend:
