June Boom at the Wedge

It’s that time of year again, friends. I woke up Friday morning to a text from my nephew that read “The wedge is breaking 20ft today!”

I rubbed the sleep out of my eyes and screamed “What?!” as I re-read the text. Katie and the kids looked at me and were like “What’s up, Dad?” and I said, “Time to get to school, babies; get in the car!” Kissed Mrs. Brossa goodbye, grabbed my gear, got the kids to school early, knocked out some calls on the way to the beach and shot a few good pics of some pretty bitchin’ waves. Mangia!

Regular see-the-waves crowd on scene… I didn’t see as many soaked casualties as years past (see the post from 2010 for swamped tourists).

I got there right when black ball went up so I missed the surfers in the water. I did see one just as I got there shredding this impossibly big shore break and watched him get gobbled up alive…Unfortunately, I didn’t have the camera up and ready for that shot…

A little slapback on the jetty.

I thought this photo would look a little better with the background in a sepia tone… it’s best looked at without the other photos competing visually… give it a click…

This little bro came up behind me from out of nowhere and dropped his sloppy wet, chewed up Frisbee at my feet and looked up at me with his “please, mister, throw for me, its all I live for” eyes and I broke out laughing and chucked the Friz a couple of times before his dude came over and relieved me of friz duty…
