Big Swell to Arrive Friday


EVERYBODY WHO WANTS BIG WAVES SAY "YHEAAA" AND GIVE IT A BIG THUMBS UP.

So here we are around our computers, talking to lifeguards, watching the horizon, checking surfline every 5 minutes. It's all part of the ritual and it's fun and exciting.

For all who don't surf here is what's happening. Extremely large waves, originating in Japan, are due to hit the shoreline of California beginning tomorrow Friday. The storm creating these waves is so massive it is generating 55 to 85ft surf in Ireland, 30 to 50 footers for Hawaii and probably 20 to 30 ft. for central California. I may be off by 10 feet but at that size who's counting with the exception in California. Since we are parked 20 feet from the water's edge in front of one of the coasts favorite big wave surfing locations, we are told by the camp rangers we may have to evacuate.
