I thought this would be a good post for today as much of the US is by now, thoroughly done with Winter and good news…Spring is just 3 weeks away! On the same gorgeous day the Mavericks Invitational was set to be held down in Half Moon Bay, I ventured up the coast with my Pentax 67 to see what the swell was looking like closer to home…and it was pretty incredible. It’s hard to tell in the photos because there are so few surfers out for scale, but it’s about 15 feet (surfer’s estimate) or 25-30 feet (that same surfer’s mother’s estimate). Out of respect for the patient locals who seldom score this place so good, I’ll leave it unnamed. If any friends want to come visit with a big board however, it’s on!
