Size...not sure. Heck - I've lived in San Diego for 15 years then TX after that - I had never seen anything like these waves in all my life!!! I had to pick the sand out of my teeth for days after my jaw hit the ground! Everyone kept tellling me to wait until winter. What - they get bigger?

Nope, I was standing at Pipeline looking south. The waves just kept coming and building up that white-water.
