COASTALWATCH | THIS WEEK IN SURFING

A Video Recap of The Year That Was 2016

For the 52nd This Week In Surfing column this year, the final for 2016, I sat in front of a camera and counted down the ten things not just from this week, but from the whole gosh darn 12 months of this ridiculous end of week listicle.

From the punch in the face of a surf clip from Mikey Wrigh in January, to the World Championships of John John Florence and Tyler Wright, and seven things in between, this was this year in surfing. Have a good new year's everyone. See you in 2017!
