Happy Hour At Off The Wall

Yes, it was really good. But the waves weren’t the only thing that made yesterday evening so special. After an eventful day across the North Shore, including the finish to the Vans World Cup at Sunset, everyone was on a similar wavelength of happiness. Between qualifications, first-place finishes, opening ceremonies and pumping surf, it would’ve been a shame not to have a couple beers with friends come sundown – so everyone did. But not before logging a few last waves between Rockpile and Backdoor as the sun melted into the Pacific.
