Maverick’s was particularly ugly this morning with strong NW winds. It was a dying swell and not really that good by Maverick’s standards. In between feeling seasick and freezing cold, Bud Frietas (who was driving the ski) and myself drove way out past the break to shoot some of the offshore spray blowing off the waves. It’s crazy how much water is moving over that reef during a swell and even crazier to think that this wave is considered an insider and no one even paddled for it. Pictures never do it justice.
