A Labor Day weekend swell documented from three summertime surf meccas: Puerto Escondido, Lower Trestles, and The Wedge in Newport Beach. While technically we have a few weeks left of summer, by most accounts Labor Day marks the end of the fun. Unless you’re a surfer. To us it means crispy early morning lineups, combo swells, and less crowded beaches. And while it’s always bittersweet to see the end of babes in bikinis, bagging low hanging fruit from Arizona, and frolicking in warm water, we welcome Fall with open arms and short arm fullsuits.
