Well it's just another beautiful morning in good olde Newport Beach, the conditions are glassy, the water is warm, and the surf is hallow and playful! Some great surfers were out today, we got to catch some quality time with Robin Kegel of Gato Heroi before he left to go back home to France after a long stint of shaping through the Summer and Fall. Robin was riding one of his favorite personal models, the Szaber. Troy Elmore was testing out some rad bonzer designs he's been working on and they definitely seem to be working really fluidly. Levi Prairie was on his trusty Dash Dirty Martini showing what the design is capable of in some steeper surf. Sadly, Kyle Kennelly broke his Gato Heroi Acid and found some swim fin to body surf a couple waves and traded off with Robin Kegel to test out his Szaber.
