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.

Took day off and went surfing yesterday with my daughter (always a good thing). Scored 4'-8' Point Judith RI. We surfed that left hand reef break most of the day. Too bad the swell peaked in the middle of the night from hurricane Eduardo. That's Block Island way off in the distance.

Pyro, this was medium Wednesday! Big Wednesday, in 1973 I think, had waves scraping the bottom of Malibu pier and displacing the deck of the pier. 20+ foot backs, not this little 7 foot stuff you are showing in that video. So this swell was kinda no news at all in comparison. Have you ever watched the movie Big Wednesday?
