Colin Moran Gets Loose

A sample of Newport Beach's summer offerings

Summertime in Newport Beach treads the fine line between it being amazing and it being horrible to be a surfer. Crowds descend upon the sandy beaches, blackballs go up, and swell is hit or miss. Yet still, there are days when there’s no better place to be in California, like when south swell filters between the countless jetties creating a masterpiece of wedges to be feasted upon. Newport Beach’s own Colin Moran and Matt Tromberg (of Metal Neck fame) just released 2 1/2 minutes of, in their words, “fun waves and some shitty waves.” Despite this all being filmed in Newport Beach, you’ll see Colin in everything from waist-high slop to head-high barrels.
