Surfing Richmond’s “Z-Spot”

Local boater and filmmaker Hunter Davis recently put together this short clip of his friend, Kyle Irby, getting after it in the surf below Z-Dam near Pony Pasture. Good stuff.

About Andy Thompson

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
