Sunday Surfing in Hoop Pole Cove

Went for a walk on the Atlantic Ave path wrapping around Andrews Point and what did I spy but two surfers in wet suits standing on the granite looking at the waves.

But  where is the other one? Not sure how he did it but one of them got out there. I was running up to the house to get the family to witness craziness and missed exactly how he did it. (I also got my cell phone so I could call the Rockport FD when they bashed their brains on the rocks.)

To the left is Hoop Pole Cove where the lone surfer ended up. He rode some amazing waves then somehow exited stage left. Coming up on low tide the rocks were slick black. I’m still a little surprised I wasn’t making a phone call. (Click on pick for larger.)
