The Golden Coast

The swell that was slated to outshine all the others kinda came, but kinda didn't. The waves were good, the weather glorious, but the all-time gear didn't quite arrive. Nevertheless, those in the know scored hard, and those not in the know fought with record crowds, and while the anticipation might have raised our expectations and made us disappointed with quite perfect conditions, you can't blame us for being frothers, can you?

Fortunately lensman Andrew Shield is one of those guys totally and always in the know.
