Big Big Waves

Last week we had some outragous surf developed from a storm off New Zealand. Couldn't have happened at a better time.
Huntington Beach was the site of the Hurley U.S Open of Surfing for the last two weekends. It's been pretty calm surf at the last several big surf contests here but this storm created some monster surf at our beaches.
Check out this video of Jamie O'Brien surfing The Wedge at Newport Beach. Awsome.
This is Not a spot for the beginners. Last week a bodyboarder was killed as he was pummeled against the jetty rocks to the right. On the left side is just a very hazardous slam into the sand. -He had no business in that area, especially with the monster surf conditions.
