Could've been a shark underwater that bit it in half. Or a Hindu that was on her way up from the bottom after training for 23-footers by yogging (y, not a soft j) on the ocean floor with weights in hand.
FYI to all, my protocol for 8-10'ers is to paddle feverishly with swimmies on the arms. I really can only dream of someday training for deuce deuce plus 1 waves. I think I'm too for northern. Not in our blood.
I saw a 4ft spinner shark jump out of the water today over 23 and a half foot pumping surf over s.carolina best artificial reef break or the poopline as we like to call it because its a giant offshore sewage line that creates the wave. coincidence that your talking about a 23 ft wave?I think not you must have found the secret spot.
