On December 6, 2007, the west coast of North America enjoyed one of the larger surf swells in recent memory. All up and down the coast, 15-20 foot waves were common. In the Santa Cruz area, there were 7 rescues and all but one of the surfers survived. Here in Todos Santos, no one was harmed. The photos below speak for themselves. Enjoy!
The morning was overcast and grey. The waves had been breaking over the berm all night so water was in the arroyo and you were not able to drive to the berm. We had to slosh through to get to the ocean.
It was a bit hard to get out. When I arrived at 8 a.m. there were only 4-5 surfers in the water.
The waves and conditions were nearly perfect!
That’s the Colonel, right after he dropped in on builder Tom.
It’s not as bad as it looks. These two are great friends and burn each other regularly. Go figure!
