Written by Brian Tarcy

WELLFLEET – On a beautiful July afternoon, the long waves at Marconi Beach beckoned many surfers, SUP riders, boogie board riders, and body surfers.

The waves beckoned us too because, well, surfers are just fun to watch. So we watched for a couple of hours and shot these photos. It looked crowded to us, but then we ran into a surfer we know, who told us it was more crowded in the morning.


Here are more Cape Cod Wave surfing stories.
