    Nice photo. Was that battle of the banks last year? Looks sick!


    LedZep: I agree with you. Look at footage at the Wedge in Newport. Literally an unsurfable (stand up) wave. Its a mad made Death slab. Ive seen surfers drop in and get shacked and then getted demolished. Bodyboarders can sometimes make the section. They can do the 9o degree or even inverted drop.

    Bodyboarding is not my cup of tee if the waves are shortboardable etc., but there is definitely a place in the water for bodyboarding. Good OC MD shorebreak. Huge sunsett cliffs waves. Big ass man made death slabs. Even some guys at pipe make the drops that are unmakable..
    But that goes back to the whole core of it all. Being a waterman. Swimming, diving, surfing, fishing, bodysurfing, bodyboarding, kayaking. whatever gets me wet.

    I love going body surfing at this jetty that gets black balled in the summer. You can paddle out with fins and get nice warm cover ups and stuff... Its whatever. I do that and it is my tribute to growing up in MD. I used to do alot of bodysurfing before I ever surf surfed.

    Yeah, I remember countless years of riding straight towards the shore on crappy walmart boogie boards, and I would still be having fun. And I would bodyboard, say high-tide shorebreak, bit I don't own a decent body-board doh

    i remember those times. except my parents would get me the higher grade boogie boards that they sell at wings. but defiently body boarding big high tide shorebreak is alot of fun. as all you have to worry about is getting scratched on the bottom and you dont have to worry about breaking a board.

Then you gotta resort to sketchy jet ski sessions etc. Really, i would say a clean, 8 foot day anywhere on the east coast is pretty much maxed out. When it gets bigger, you may as well stand and watch mother nature.

    Which is why the Sand Diego Beach breaks stay empty for months at a time during a good NW winter. The beach breaks here get 6 feet or so, then its a mess unless you pinned up against a jetty. We all cruise down to the reefs all winter, cause they can hold the shape...

    You can surf a 15 FT sd reef break the exact same way you surf a 5 FT OC MD beach break... Its seriously that easy. Big long faces on the drops, tons of speed on the face and they NEVER CLOSE OUT!
    this is deffinetly True the cliffs are awsome.. i was about to surf OB, a beach break like 8 to 10 foot. but got stopped by some locals who said the cliffs were where its at. i surfed the cliffs that big and you could see the guys working the line from the back of the wave, thats how mellow it was... I love san diego....

    and for the other guy who said just look at the topography, i think he ment bathymetry, but that only helps on medium to long period and sometimes just makes the outerbars break which sometimes makes it just weired... short period and shorter medium period swell isnt so much affected by the shelf.

    Ive seen plenty of 10-15 foot SURF there, with not a soul on it.,...

    If you want to talk ****, back it up... I think your a liar.
    i am a liar....who isn't?therefore you are a DONKEY.learn that San Diego doesn't have 2 d's and that the thread started was in reference to EAST COAST SPOTS..... DONKEY!type hurricane Noel+outer banks,and get a clue ........DONKEY!

    And I dont know why you guys are hating on that OC MD photo. I remember that from a couple years back, and on that sequence, He goes straight because if you notice... He goes straight and when he turns, he still out runs the barrel...

    So my question to you is, if you want to get tucked under that 6-8 ft lip, why would you go straight? The wave obviously dies on the shoulder there, and he should have dug his arm in and gone even slower and straigher on his take off... my opinion.

    But anyway, there are photos on that same exact day of some guy in OC MD just CHARGIN. I mean, the guy got sick photos tucked behind some seriously thick shorebreak lips. The guy was dropping in to 8 foot shorebreak barrels and getting out of them. I consider myself a hell-man charger, but I would think twice about half of those inside bowls man. A closeout will fill ya as$ crack with sand pretty quick.

    But ONE more thing... Im sure everyone here has surfed a reef before, and you know unless its PIPE or TAHITI, then reefs actually LESSEN the power of the wave when it cross it. That is why reefs and points give you that perfect shape...

    Thats the scary thing about Hatteras and JERZ and places that get thick and hollow...

    A 8 foot day at Hatteras can litterally be much worse than a 15 foot day at pipe.... At pipe, you have a much better chance in chosing a wave and making the section...

    Everyone knows when it gets heavy back east on those sanbars, its a damn crapshoot, you can have the wave of your life, or just get destroyed... 20MPH offshore wind and 10 foot sets....

    I mean, I know that its not the most powerful place on earth, but Hatteras and a lot of east coast spots may not be perfect, but they certainly are heavy....

    In my opinion, the heaviest wave in the WORLD that is surfed regularly is Puerto Escondio. That sh** is Bigger than pipe line, and ALL SAND!

    I mean, youtube some crazy Puerto escondido rides... That 20 second barrel of a tow in a couple years back....

    Those tough guys in Hawaii can talk all that mess, but those boys down in Mexico, where there arent all the cameras, and GIANT swells roll through all year un noticed by the surf world... Those boys have more metal than anywhere on earth...

    PUERTO son... PUERTO!
    a hellman charger you consider yourself?scary thing about hatteras and jerz,reefs make waves less powerful?how stupid and donkeyish can one person be?puerto is the heaviest wave in the world?an 8 foot day at hatteras can be worse than 15 foot pipe?I THOUGHT THE EAST COAST DOESN'T GET 8 FOOT?those tough guys in Hawaii would eat you alive...and there are more cameras ,videos, etc.at puerto escondidothan in Hollyweird......i went to the mexican pipeline in 1984.......what were you doing that year?not even born yet i would suspect.keep your ignorance on less noticeable display next time !
