There is nothing quite like a good end section.

I always cringe when I'm watching from the beach and someone kicks out instead of hitting it.

You know this guy did something insane.

^ 2013 Nominees!!

edit: regarding the Cortez Bank/opening wave, that place has some San Diego history behind it going back to the late 60's, early 70's before the harvesting of abalone (deep sea/400+ feet) was halted ('72). The CB was ripe with ab, but two of the local divers were eaten by Great Whites. Evidently there is a large seal population that mate there (or use to) which attracted GW's! I was offered a job as a diver in the Spring of '69. Good bucks for a short season (3-4 months), but hard and dangerous work. $45-$50K for 3-4 months work. That was when your entry level salary for 12 months as a fireman/firefighter, police dept, etc was around $7-9K a year. Everyone new about the huge surf at CB, but also new about the huge GW's, though.

Pyro - awesome, bro! thnx!!

Terrific, Brownie. The original spirit of surfing, there, too. Adventure, myth, "another world". Loved it.

Growing up by the coast (Costa Mesa), I always feel like I missed out on the whole surfing thing. My friends all started in 2nd or 3rd grade and for some reason I never did. By 8th grade, they were the hot sh#t surfers. They also became really bad students, smoked pot, cut class, etc., which was pretty much of the opposite of me and the kind of circles my folks would have let me run with. Oh well...Plus, by that time I had found climbing, so it was all over.

At this stage of my life, still living near the coast, it would be WAY easier to surf than climb on any given day.
