Team WRSC scores EPIC Ollie’s Point ~ Jan 20th 2016
January 23, 2016
After a week of forecasting, planning and preparation, Team WRSC scored one of the most memorable days of the year at the famous, Ollie’s Point. With not a drop of water out of place, Team WRSC surfed machine-like 4-6ft right-hand barrels for over 6 hours! The waves never seemed to stop, and with over 500 waves ridden throughout the day, we concluded our journey with noodle-arms, salty skin, and smiles from ear to ear.
Our all-star team consistent of : Joe Walsh (Owner of Witch’s Rock Surf Camp), Pat McNulty (Chief Operation Officer) Niki Hurren (Volcano Brewing Company Brewer) Ryan Waldron (Reservations team) Julie Javelle (Reservations team) and Brian Cole (Super-mega WRSC return guest)
I could continue rambling about how epic the waves were with image provoking language and a bunch of sensory words, but I’d rather just let the photos speak for themselves. Enjoy 🙂

When Joe Walsh claims this was one of the best days he’s surfed Ollie’s in the past 15 years, we all felt very humbled. Here’s the legend himself setting up for the tube!
