Who else likes a good surfing video in the middle of Autumn? “Risky Ripples” fans have been waiting for this instalment since late August.
Matt Bromley, who I mainly refer to as “surfer guy,” has released the much anticipated second episode of his surf series “Risky Ripples.” So if anyone likes the idea of carving pumpkins and watching surf footage, then today is your lucky day.
