Just watched chasing mavericks again, and even though i've seen it quite a few times, it always reminds me of the power of the ocean and the dangers it presents, along with the fun. That being said waist high waves aren't very dangerous, but when they reach the size of your house, you better be careful. But anyways im pretty sure every surfer here on the east coast would donate their house car and every other belonging besides their surfboard to get some decent waves right about now.
