On Friday, June 28, 2013 surfers get ready to brave the waves at Short Sands Beach at Oswald West State Park at the Oregon Coast. Short Sands, one of the most popular spots for learning to surf, is in a big cove. Its shape — broad and curved — means that it generally offers bigger swells on one end and smaller waves on the other. Despite its notoriously frigid waters, surfers find appealing waves up and down the Northwest coast. And the many coves, headlands and curved beaches make the stretch from Seaside to Pacific City an unusually reliable surfing locale. CREDIT: Leah Nash for the Wall Street Journal. SLUG: OREGONSURF.OD
