Since 2003, Ballard native Rob Casey has been finding epic surfing waves on Puget Sound, hours from the ocean. Rob will talk about how he and a friend first found large freighter and tug waves on Shilshole Bay. Rob will also introduce the other types of surf available on the Sound such as downwinding, wind generated beach breaks, surfing tidal rapids at Deception Pass, surfing recreational boat wakes and how to boogie board and surf kayak Golden Gardens. Learn which craft are best for each location or type of surf, where to go, how to learn and stay safe. Read Rob’s story about Seattle Freighter Wave Surfing in the Inertia
