And let there be waves!

It was just yesterday I was complaining about the lack of swell and how bad it was going to look today, but that was yesterday. As I started getting calls saying there where waves out there I knew I might be eating crow today. Sure as day there was a solid 2' to 3' foot swell rolling through. Now I know I don't usually make a big deal out of a 2' to 3' foot day, but after these past two weeks today was like chasing mountains! The north side of the Huntington Beach Pier was about as crowded as it can get with every surfer within 35 miles of the shoreline in the water. Hope for more of it tomorrow!
