A Maverick’s Feast

Days like this only come around a few times a decade. Massive. Consistent. Glassy all day. Monday was a big-wave feast for all the boys and girls with the appetite to paddle out. There were huge air-drops and wipeouts. Savannah Shaughnessy bagged a 20-footer. Some underground hero named Manuel Resano absolutely sent it. From dawn till dusk the crowd devoured 20 to 25 footers and returned to shore stuffed. Then, it was straight to the Old Princeton Landing to wash it down, and recall their bounty. –Taylor Paul

Big wave surfers or daredevil conversationalists?

Practically empty, right?
