California, Nord Surf Reports et Surf Forecasts

About California, Nord

The wilder cousin of it's softer southerly relatives, Northern California is cold, rugged, sharky and holds some of great surf but be prepared to battle against big waves and strong winds. Facing into North Pacific with endless reefs, points and beaches but most with difficult access. Dominant wind is from the north or north-west and swell from the north-west or west. Autumn through to spring is the most consistent with a succession of swells hammering the coastline. Sparsely populated this is still considered to be a surfing frontier by many.

Today Mavericks was firing, the sun was bright and the excitement high. I certainly don't have the skills and gears to shoot Mavericks but I was thrilled to go outside and capture this unique day. The waves were breaking in a weird way, like the potato patch in Marin, some, very far from the shore and sideways. The spray and haze made by the waves were mesmerizing, and rainbows arrived shortly after. Those memories are etched in your mind.

The waves were pumping, I stopped the car up the hill and shoot this between Half Moon Bay and Pacifica.
