Big day at The Wedge -- July 24, 2009

F'in Gnarly!

Huge south swell came in July 23rd from a storm 1000 miles south in Tahiti. It has produced up to 25 foot waves and 1 death so far! This was recorded by ME July 25th, 2009.
Computers do this NO JUSTICE WHAT SO EVER. This is truely an event you needed to see in person! Words themselves cannot do justice about how breathtaking, beautiful, and wonderful a sight like this is. Especially when it's 20 feet away from you!

RIP to the surfer 50 year old Monte Valantin who drowned on Friday, as he became overwhelmed by a massive set that sent him into the rocks. He later died at the hospital and they say it was because he drowned.
2 guys sent to the hospital in critical condition.

Biggest I have ever seen it.
