Hard to believe its been 4 years since the Doomsday Swell....scary how time is racing by.
Mitchell, can you give me the skinny on that swell?
3X OH beach break where guys were getting towed out and into waves. Of course, all we see is the perfect A-frames.
Was it really that good? Or was it more like OBSF, where the inside is like a churning cauldron and most of the sets were closed out and unmakeable?

Yeah...i literally popped over the dune expecting it to be solid and saw Vince Boulanger drop into that beast above within seconds. Glad i had my camera with me. One more from that day:
Not at all closed out or unmakeable. Like BIG 10 second period windswell.
I dont remember exactly what the swell setup was. At least in the Delmarva it was just a big short period wind swell so the waves were steep enough and a-framey enough people (not me) were paddling in. Nobody was towing or stepping off while i was there. Vince B. was killing it (but so were many others). Really miss watching him surf.
That's just crazy dude, absolutely epic.
I just remember looking at the pics and reading at least one write-up about that Colin Herlihy guy towing in to those monster OCMD barrels with a handful of other local boys...at least that's how I remember it. I wondered how gnar gnar it was and if it could be paddled out to.
Hell, who am I kidding. It's not like I would've paddled out into that anyways lol

Oh man 4 years? That was the day of my epic skedaddle.
