Adrenaline and excitement. These are the best words 16-year-old surfer Caroline Marks (@caroline_markss) has to describe the feeling of riding the man-made wave — designed by surfer Kelly Slater (@kellyslater) — at #SurfRanchPro, a World Surf League (@wsl) competition this past weekend in central California. “It’s about a 50-second ride,” says Caroline, who surfs for at least four hours a day as part of her training regimen. “You can do about eight turns and then get two barrels. There’s nothing like it.” 🌊
