Surf Camp was lucky enough to celebrate graduation with the 36 seniors from North Yarmouth Academy class of 2014. We got the entire group out for a night of surfing at Scarborough Beach last week during their Project Graduation program. After a cold week leading up to the event, we lucked out with beautiful weather and one of the best evenings of surf so far this year.

Above & Below: Paddling out into clean lines. Sets in front of the boardwalk were head high, closer to Prouts Neck there were still chest high sets coming through — enough to keep everyone on their toes.
Above: It was a long walk back with the boards, but the sunset was beautiful.
