WATCH: 2 Kooks, 1 Wedge.
Don’t call it a novelty wave, Newport Beach’s infamous Wedge recently woke from it’s Winter slumber and none other than Kalani Robb and Tyler Stanaland planned a proper assault on the place. These Catch Surf kooks have been unleashing an arsenal of partwave tricks around the world which has earned them the title “2 KOOKS”.
With this first Wedge worthy swell on the way, we called up the kooks to capture the chaos. The swell happened to arrive the day after Newport beaches were closed due to a fatal shark attack only a few hundred feet from the take-off zone. But with legends like Rob Machado, the Gudauskas Brothers, Punker Pat, Dillon Graves and every local charger frothing at first light, the Catch Surf crew paddled to the top of the peak and had a historic day.
5:30am Pit stop at classic Newport coffee spot Al Cappuccino for pre-surf Acai. Usually a place to get the surf report from the boys, but on this morning it was only eerie rumors of the shark attack and if the Lifeguards would re-open that dirty old Wedge.
6:01am A little scared of the Wedge, but never afraid to be a kook.
