This Playful North Atlantic Slab Makes Coldwater Surfing Look Inviting

Despite the best laid plans, a surf trip overseas will always be a crapshoot, as the North Atlantic is an unruly beast, with the wind and waves in a constant state of unpredictable flux. So, when Dane Anderson joined Wilem Banks on strike trip across the pond, he knew they were rolling the dice, despite a solid forecast.

Fortunately for these two, the swell showed up as advertised, and for 10 days, the conditions worked in their favor more often than not. The two scored everything from a playful chip-in slab, to a heavy water Sunset-esque point, to a backless beast they reckon the camera doesn’t do justice.
