    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    The reports always hype up any sizeable swell, it's usally never as big as they forecast but Triple overhead will close out most spots except a few..Unless you have the right equipment and can handle bigger surf, it's best you just watch the show from the cliff..

    So, how was the trip? Any pictures of Big Friday?

    Amazing! perfect surf, people, and weather. Surfed Black's, Swami's, Pipe's, and Sunset Cliffs. Torrey Pines & Scripps Pier to closey. Monday-Thursday was stomach to chest, with some head high sets. Friday morning began building into the overhead range and by noon it was double overhead in most spots. Photos I got but not uploaded. The trip exceeded my initial expectations and my only issue was I had to return to NY. Looking at Panama or Hawaii for March, ever been?

    SWAMIS BRO! That place is an amazing longboard wave and shortboard if it is big enough. If you are renting boards, there are tons of surf shops. When I was there, one of the guys out there had rented a brand new Firewire longboard for $20 for the day.

    Swami's has left it's imprint in my mind for sure, the only downside is it was packed out unless you made an attempt to pickup the inside...

    I have been watching the cams the past couple of weeks and yes, there is a crowd out there. But it's not a malibu party wave by any means. I would definetly attempt it.
