    Totally fun and unbelievably dangerous. You absolutely have to respect nature, especially in the form of big waves. I've heard too many times of people being held under after the wave comes down on them and drowning.

    In any case -- great pictures. Obviously the guys in the pictures know what they're doing. You caught the massive power of the waves, the fun, and the danger (esp in 7).

    Those are crazy waves. We had some big ones in Mexico on vacation last week but not that big.

    Nice pics, i like number 2 and 5 from a surfing aspect. I didnt hear anything about the deaths though, odd. Was there some sort of paddle out for them?

    ha the wedge is awesome I was going to surf it last summer but I didnt. My friends step brother used to be a pro body surfer at the wedge sponsored by Viper (its a fins company) his best friend broke his neck hitting the ground. The wedge has one hell of a shore break. So the people who died werent in the water they were just on the rocks? thats really sucks. I usually hang out at salt creek during the summer and some beaches in laguna like oak street. Nice pics !
