We have had lots of big wave action in SoCal this summer. This was “Big Wednesday” – a hurricane off the coast of Baja Mexico created the huge storm surf. Some sets hit 25 feet high. No surfers while we were there. Just bodyboarders. The crowds went nuts each time someone caught a wave. It was worth braving the insane traffic and heat to join the peanut gallery; it felt like a celebration of life by the beach.
