West Swell

A west swell graced the west coast last week. Waves from Mexico up to the Northwest were the best of the season so far. Scanning through my Instagram feed I saw big wave photos from places like Maverick’s and exciting video footage from Southern California. I checked the surf forecast for Oregon and sure enough big waves were predicted. Knowing that Surfline is very accurate I immediately made plans to drive to the coast, with the added benefit of a rare sunny winter day.

The scenery, surfing, and waves did not disappoint. Above you’ll see a small gallery of surfing photos from my trip to Seaside, Oregon. It was a gorgeous day, the waves the best I’ve seen there, and the surfers – albeit there are bigger waves elsewhere in the world – are some of the most gutsy around.

Here’s hoping that you enjoy looking at these as much as I do.
