I have never seen the crowds on the beach that huge before. I suspect it had a lot to do with the US Open going on this weekend. Ah to be young and full of energy. Thanks for capturing some images, I'm still kicking myself for not bringing the camera.
did I hear right that a body boarder got killed when being drilled into the rocks?
I used to bodysurf there when I was young and dumb. I have been there when it was that big. Gnarliest wave I have ever ridden. The hairy part is the 6" of water that the wave breaks on. You eff up a little and you are picking sand out of you teeth for weeks.
