Duffy iI was maxing at 10. Saw coffin get a bomb. Wind came up at 1. Tons of pros current and past. Lots of cameras, probably be featured tomorrow. Wow. 14.8' 17 sec from 290. I think parsons got the largest wave I saw.

I'm calling it 8 with 10' sets. Once every 5 years that big and clean. Easy 3x oh on bomb sets.

I wasn’t at that point. A different one. But yeah, it was big.

Saw a couple guys suit up (one dude with a 8 foot+ gun) stare at it for a bit and as I walked passed them with a twin fin fish under my arm, laughing maniacally at a big set cleaning up the few who were out, they both got back in their car and left.

And it was so good.

BTW, 3x overhead is more than 10 feet. Can we stop with the bullshit macho understating of wave sizes already?

If I got approval from the city for a 8 foot wall and built a wall that was triple over head you think I could just tell them it’s “Hawaiian scale”?

So weird. It was 4.5 at 13 this morning which should have made my beachbreak out of control but it was chest to shoulder high with occasional overhead sets. Saw some outer wind developing but it was actually pretty clean.

there were a couple cleanup sets that mowed people down - one guy had a broken board (CI), but yeah a bit slow, but overall pretty fun where I'm at - was worried about the same thing
