Nice pic Saltydude. Coos Bay can get mean. scary, and nasty. Respect to those that really surf it when it's big. it's out of my comfort zone.

hard to tell if this is a decent wave or not. some photogenic doesn't = good

sick wave, good picture, great location... i might be moving to the pac north soon so this is encouraging... screw the haters, only thing that could make this picture better is some surfers or a shamoo in the wave... thanks mate

I think someone needs a cuddle. Reach into your handbag, grab your tampons and stop insulting someone elses work. He's not in Indo, or Oz, he's in Oregon and im pretty sure if you drove to the beach and saw this, you'd be pretty stoked...... nipple! Good shot saltydude. Looks very enticing.

How can this be almost perfect. it is not even gona run, its so weak and shapless, probably kelly slater wouldnt even be able to get a barrel. Every single shot of hundreds of other places break 100x better than this. a blind man could take a better photo at indo, hawaii, australia, safrica and many more.

Dude....take off on the right, go left and backdoor through the barrel, (Kalk bay style)do an epic top turn on the shoulder just before the wave dies. Tons of fun to be had. When you look at a wave you should not judge it by how weak and shit it looks but rather on what you can do with it. And just the fact that there isn't 50 people out scrambling for it already makes it perfect to me.

You know that not every wave is about slashing and getting insanely pitted, right? Give me this wave with a few of my best buds and retro fish any day. Laern some respect for the lifestyle.

KeyboardWarrior_slayer , i'll be more inclined to listen to you once you post a picture of yourself charging some epic 20 foot tube or busting some insane air. Beaut pic

yo slayer even if youre somehow complaining about the left check that right! steep enough for you? youre saying you wouldnt go out if you saw this? in my opinion its probably cause you dont know anything about surfing and/or wouldnt be able to ride it

Hey local slayer...go do your texting...and whining...on your cell phone/Ipad/whatever...in heavy, rush hour traffic...please. And work on your spelling while you're at it!...commEn(!!!)sense...Come ON!!!...HawaAi(That's Sacrilege!!!...It's Hawaii!!!)...In Florida, we would call you a local LOSER...and make a big L on your forehead with a black permanent marker(It goes away eventually...with enough scrub...er, I mean...or so I've been told, heh heh). Ah, who'm I kidding?...You'd fit right in here with all the other arrogant, whiny, educationally challenged 2 ft. mush gen Y slashers & slayers & rippers.

....Obviously u guys have zero wave knowledge or commen sense. i wouldnt even go out there if i saw this. its not even a wave its a powerless crumble.. donno y u arguing, a wave that no1 even looks twice at in hawaai would be a better wave than this

Don't be a dick, and if you're from cape town, which I think you are, I'm pretty sure that there would be 100 people on this wave if it was at all accessible. You're full of shit and it's people like you who give South Africans a bad name. Sure we have some seriously epic surf spots, and through most Autumn and Winter we get it good quite often, but that is not the point. The shot is beautiful, the moment is epic, the wave is flawless, and you'd have to be quite full of it to be moaning when the waves are this good.

not everything is about indo or fiji... enjoy the beauty of nature without it having to be a 12 ft barrel... this is one of my favorite potd's for the past week or two... good stuff

Far out. Spend time in S.Africa, but there is something about the water in these parts that give me the willies.

@ danemm...There are a lot of orcas off Texas in the Gulf of Mexico...mostly in deeper water areas where they can feed on tuna. Never heard of any killing humans...outside of marine seaquariums...where at least some must be going mad from long confinement.

I think I'd be worried about orcas more than sharks once I got north of san fran

What do you mean by "almost"?

saltydude Jul 22, 2011 Rating: 0

Exactly my thoughts...I had been out earlier. Perfect would have been to have had someone on it...or in it.
