Finders Keepers

El Nino makes its debut on the West Coast.

We all know El Nino is a rare occasion, and that every once in a decade or so the phenomena graces the Pacific with uncharacteristic Winter conditions that translate to good waves and plenty of weather. Over the past week, the first of hopefully many Northwest storms marched it’s way down our coast and the results were a few glorious windows at spots you wouldn’t normally look. Those who searched were rewarded, and the creative minds prevailed.
