Pyro. Nice video find. My son told me there is video of Laird shooting the pier on his SUP. I'll have to see if I can find that later.

I have a couple buddy's from stoney point who claimed they surfed on that big Wednesday! now I can tell em how old that news is!!!

Pretty f'ing funny!! I think this last swell came about as close to duplicating that '75 swell as you could get. That reef break became an obsession with me, and 39 years later it finally broke again. And it sounds like it went OFF.

Cool. What was that barrelling left? Are the ariel shots done with a "drone"? [yes]

Malibu Gum trading cards?

Does the Ranch catch this swell, then on up to Santa Cruz and San Francisco? Is there a swell cam for SF Ocean Beach?

I can't even watch that video. It is too frustrating to *not* be on that swell. That left is like Desert Point, but in California.

There's another one in the que, seņor Norberto. Tracking NW right up the coast of Baja. Not too powerful yet (cat 1 compared to Maria's brief stint as a 5) but it appears to be moving a bit further north. Probably won't be as big surf, but still good and warmest water in years. We'll see. Hope I can sneak back down.

Friggen Norbert is going to ruin my Sunday Tahquitz plans. Thing is going to fall apart and roll over So Cal. Oh well, we DO need the rain. I'd better get together a plan B fast; Since it's going to be tropical around here, Margarita's!

Name the spot. A good left breaks between the jetties on big winter swells(?, I think winter...It's been 30 years) . You can see them peaking but not breaking in this photo. Currents were an issue, but they also contributed to the break, I think.

My surfing buddy Mark S. got one of the best wave I've ever seen on a right at the North Jetty. I got one of the 'waves of my life' and another wipeout of my life between the jetties

photo courtesy of Google. I have not idea if cutting a pasting it is legal. Sorry if it's not.

It was fickle, a LONG drive for most, and I figure it could hardly be a secret spot; so yes you both got it. I think it would be called Humboldt Bay Harbor Mouth. It's funny, South Jetty back in the 70's had an intense local vibe with rumors of windows being shot out of cars. I never surfed that side.

Thanks to a reminder text from drljefe, I watched the last bit of Medina's heat and all of Slater's heat vs. Flores at Trestles.
