Chuck Patterson GoPro shots

The guy from Dana Point who shot video of the shark last summer with his trusty GoPro put it to more traditional use during some fun waves the other day.   If he’s proven one thing over the years it is that no one has fun quite like Chuck Patterson.

The question is…


Dustin is already there… for now.
