WELLFLEET – The intention by Cape Cod Wave was to shoot video of surfers surfing at the Cape Cod Oldtimers Surfing Classic on Sunday. But there were less waves and more haze than was ideal.
And so here, from our favorite event of the year, is a slideshow of surfers and surfboards, old T-shirts, beach style, and the spooky sky that made the 2019 Surfing Classic into a party on the beach. The photos of the bluff with the sun over it are kind of cool, we think.
Unfortunately, we do not have good video or photos of surfers surfing.
Surfing rarely happened in the sporadic small waves and when it did, the haze made it hard to see and photograph well.
The best video we shot was of three kids running in and out of the waves. It just may be part of an end of summer Cape Cod compilation coming in a few weeks Stay tuned.
For the folks at the Surfing Classic, the lack of waves hardly seemed to matter.
This was a traditional gathering, a ceremonial celebration of all that is Cape Cod surfing. If surfing happened to occur, all the better.
