Zak Noyle surf photo of Rob Machado's 10 score

Ronin,

It's a small photo, but take a look at this link to last week's local paper. Rob Machado scored a 10 to win the Pipeline Pro.

I hope Zak was wearing a helmet and maybe carrying a spare air too...

Excellent sunset!

That other JPEG reminds me of Flea Virostko's "Best Wipeout" award at a recent Eddie Aikau...

Those are just amazing pictures, I can't even imagine the wazzos one must have to take on a monster wave like that.

We should have a caption contest for that eddie aikau shot. Maybe photoshop a shark in there under him with its mouth wide open.

Luckily, it doesn't require brains or anything else that might be damaged by sustained oxygen deprivation...

4-6' is plenty for me and 10' is all I'll ever need.

This is bolsa, 6' and perfect. We've had a fantastic winter. The 3 weeks of my winter break were sick. Starting with big Wed in late Dec and up to as late as this past Monday, I don't remember a better stretch.

Re: Zak Noyle surf photo of Rob Machado's 10 score

In my Navy days in Long Beach, I used to surf HB and HB Cliffs along with Trestles on the weekend camp trips to Pendleton.* Competed in the All-Military contest a few times in the mid 80's at Pendleton and had a blast every time.* Even got my last command at Naval Unit, Lowery AFB, CO to issue "no-cost" orders for me to attend one year.* In San Diego, I hung out at the different Sunset Cliff's breaks and OB pier.* Now I do nothing but dream about surfing,... the closest I get to it is on my snowboard.* Fun, but not the same.

Those waves are unreal. Living near Puget Sound, the largest waves I ever see are a few feet in height...

Man, hodad, now you're really dredging up some memories! Pendleton in the 60's, running from the marines, throwing the boards over the fence and scrambling not to get caught. Those were some good old times. Now you need an agro attitude to surf trestle's.
