Alex Knost, along with, Jared Mell,  take on the Newport Coast together as they have for years. Starting most days off at Blackies. Newport's finest for summer loggin waves. That is if you like that slightly bumpy and incredibly over crowded human buoy sort of thing. Bring a single fin plank, a good attitude for the line up and this lack of a perfect wave kind of thing won't really make a difference.  Daytripper, on Surfer Magazine's website, has broken down all things Newport. The tour guides, Alex Knost and Jared Mell, are the best guides for this. The two stylishly surf through any sort of wave while getting they're fill on Mothers Market food and a coffee fix from one of the many coffee houses in town. As far as getting a Newport tour guide goes, just stick to Daytripper's write up and you should be able to find everything you may have wanted or not wanted to know about Newport.
