Sorry about that dot. Dirty lens. This was my first outing with a digital camera. Total photographic kook. It was an amazing day. There are some photos elsewhere here that were taken in the morning and the sets were much smaller. By ten o'clock the place was on fire and continued to build. This was a paddle in day, PWC's were out for safety only. Most amazing to me was that approximatly one half mile south of the Harbor channel a left as big as these was breaking in a place I'd never seen break before.

Looking at the wake, that’s most likely a jet ski or else that person was paddling very fast. hahaha
