On days like this I like to sit in the motor and drink a cuppa tea and the paper. You gotta look up every once in a while and cringe...at people like that guy sitting there with nowhere to go...with 10 foot of freezing cold brown sloth about to land on his noggin'!

i tend to panic when looking at a monster like that about to detonate right in front of me. the fear is exquisite.

40,000 SNE's at least, possibly more, not quite 50,000 I'd say and I agree with the SNE direction of the swell. Makes for a heavy nut equivalent when timing your drop and setting the proper line. One miscalculation gets you a whole forest full of nut equivalents on the head.

i am guessing those waves are 33,000 - 47,000 SNEs measured from the front or back and the rip is moving about 22 SNEs in an SNE direction!

Yeah paddling this is craziness when theres that jetty/groin to the right. Looks rather big and some serious swell rushing against it. I imagine you have to time your jump right unless you want to get swept right back into the rocks. Still, that seems like the only sane way out.
