We get some too
Yeah SS that was a pretty hairy paddle out
Look at that gun!
Ive seen a video of the inside breaking and noticed massive waves cloud breaking. It has to be super good somewhere around that reef out there.
I remember a no name March swell in the early 80s, maybe 1982, it was over twenty foot faces at Reef Road and my buddy asked if we could head south, so after getting a few sets we did, and ended up at the Lake Worth pier. There was a big mushy A frame wedge about 15 feet of face softly breaking out past the south side, and the pier had a T section at the end. Not after that day, it got smashed to bits and they never rebuilt it. We got a few waves, got into some beef with the locals, got into more beef for jumping off the pier from the cops. Overall, lots of fun. No one had any idea it would be that big. I remember the Palm Beach Inlet closing out, even bigger than the Halloween swell. Kim Nielsen, he is in a photo of "The Book of Waves", he said it only closed out once before in his memory - during hurricane Bertha in 1964. The photo of him is surfing a wave inside the inlet that day.
seen bigger waves in a toilet
That was the thing about Lake Worth was that you were going to get into it with someone, no matter what. I was a grom, and it wasn't rare for a grown man to beat a teen-ager down for a drop in... I don't agree with it, but it definitely taught us all surf etiquette.
One of the bigger days I've surfed in NE. Pics from Dec 2011. Note the guys head in the first pic for scale, the dreaded clean-up set,
Picture I shot of Vince Boulanger - Delmarva on that "end of days" swell or whatever it was called a few years ago:
Scary looking mutant walled up pitching death wave. Mommy!
Lots of shade in those wicked barrels.
How far out? That doesn't just look hairy, looks like a long paddle out too.
Great pic as always Mitchell. I really like the timing.
Has Bretanna or whatever the hell her name is hit you up for a date yet?
Came across some pics I took on 10/28/2002 while I was still in HS. It was the biggest swell I had seen at the time and the first time I'd been rejected on the paddle out. Shot on film.
That mutant outside strikes fear into my heart..
And I know you can't see the trough, but I still think this is the biggest pictured thus far...
Ho Lee Phuc!
Man, I wish our surf broke that close to the beach. That's just insane.
I caught this one in Newport RI in December 2012. Biggest wave I surfed on east coast.
Looks like IRI
