Surf contests are great for showing off your radical skills and getting noticed but I am more impressed by waveriders like Ted from Wakefield, RI who make it a habit of taking care of their favorite surf spots. I met Ted early Saturday morning during a surf check. He was already two bagfuls into his cleanup. We briefly chatted about the spot and how it is on privately-owned land but open to the public and how lucky we are to be able to drive there, park and surf. I didn't see him for the rest of the day but I hope he scored some love from the surf gods. Thank-you, Ted!
