Surfing in Buzzards Bay

Riding the wave
An activity that you usually don't see in the waters off of Westport and Dartmouth is surfing. The other day, with the foggy weather, temperature in the 50s and the seas in Buzzards Bay running at least 6 feet high, there were a group of hardy souls surfing off the high point at Allens Pond. You just could make out their shapes in the fog. They were completely outfitted in wetsuits and were just waiting for the right wave to ride it in. I took these series of photographs and did adjust them in Lightroom so that you could observe the action. I spoke with one of the surfers who exclaimed this is a great day. And despite the fog it really was a great day
