There may be heatwave currently winding its way through Southern California, but it’s still officially Fall in the Northern Hemisphere. That means an end to 8pm sunset surf and paddle sessions after work and eventually a cooling off of the ocean and the air. We may not have extreme seasonal temperature fluctuations here in SoCal, but we definitely notice a change that affects our flow sport rituals & routines. We caught up with Los Angeles Local Expert, Giancarlo Ranaudo, to learn more about how the onset of Fall changes his surfing flow and to get some sagely advice on how to maximize the fun during this time.
