u know when u discover a new surf spot,putting it in all the top magazines and online isn't the best idea.thats why I hate these local pros,they show up at ur regular spot,start acting like they own it,then drop a web edit that attracts 100 new people and the pros never come back lol.true story
Glad to see it was Ian Walsh and his brothers. Ian is considered to be one of the top big wave surfers and all around waterman and has New England roots.
His father is from Newport, R.I. and brought the family out to Hawaii. He is still good friends with Sid Abruzzi from Water Bros.
If you want to see some near shore surfable slabs check out Beavertail in Jamestown and Tuckermans in Middletown. Not for the beginner or second year surfer. These are not secret spots, but are rarely surfed when it is big because of the skill level needed to ride them.
