Wave Hog

Ol' Pete is a true surf aficionado, known around the beaches for his white beard, white hat and marathon surf sessions.  A couple of years ago, as he was re-acquainting himself with the pleasures of oldfartsurfing, he travelled up the coast took a series of photos during some solid swells.
Hearing a rumour of the existence of a set of quality photos, the Oldfartsurfer had been nagging Ol' Pete for copies.  Finally, while chewing the fat out the back at a local beachy a couple of weeks ago, the Oldfartsurfer asked Ol' Pete "Do you reckon you could send me those photos you've bee talking about?"  "Sure" said Ol' Pete and the photos were delivered by disk to the Oldfartsurfer's sponsor's office within a couple of days. The amazing set of photos were shown to Oldfartsurfer No. 42, Rockhead, who just happens to work for the sponsor. 
Rockhead noticed a few photos of an oldfartsurfer tearing up a classic rivermouth that only breaks a few times a year.  "I know that dude" said Rock, "he's a member of the Wild Hogs".  Now Rockhead is torn between his allegiances to oldfartsurfing and the renegade Wild Hogs, who both surf and ride motorbikes built for geriatrics, but he was delighted to see the quite anonymous appearance of his Wild hog mate amongst Ol' Pete's photos. 
The Oldfartsurfer undertook to publish the photos in this blog and asked Rockhead for his Wild Hog mate's name.  "Wave Hog we call him" said Rock

Top photos. Last photo looks like about to get caught too high. Where is the crowd? Looks more like a secret spot.

I reckon it must have been a mid week retirees session.

It was mid-week, and because we all had our seniors' cards with us we were allowed to have the place to ourselves. And no, I didn't get caught up too high! If my old and failing memory is correct I actually got a nice barrel.
