Big waves brought on by Hurricane Marie spinning off the coast of Mexico pummeled our California coastline today with some of the biggest swells in years.
Large crowds and brave surfers flocked to the beach in droves to witness or participate in what many locals are calling the “swells of the century.”
Gigasavvy photographer, Rod Foster, went down to Newport Beach this morning to capture some amazing shots at “The Wedge,” where the south swells generated waves up to 25 feet high at the already powerful break.
To surf these waves is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. For a photographer, capturing beautiful surf breaks like this is just as memorable.
