These are not photo shopped

Yaquina Head light house, Agate Beach. This piece of headland provides  protection from all wind directions except South and southwest which never blows out of those points anyway. Just to the left of the lighthouse  and down the cliffs is a big wave break ( AVALANCHE ).

3 hours of clean, weak chest/head high swell in front of the park yesterday morning.

Such a cool shot I had to rip it from yahoo news.

Some beautiful conditions lately.

Looking to Agate Beach from Nye Beach.

Cafe Mundo, Nye Beach

I like this one of Nazare, Portugal. Endless huge lines with perfect conditions.

I walked Rico on the beach Monday afternoon. Fog thick and wet enough to make rain / drizzle creating sheets of it when the 20 mph gusts blew thru. It was in the 30's with the wind chill. It's August. I had 5 layers a skull cap, a hood and gloves. It's August ??  Meanwhile, 50 miles inland it's triple digits.
