I saw that this weekend on the news. you would think the greatest surf contest in the world would have a better idea regarding the tide and potential rogue waves. <BR> <BR>glad to hear no one was "seriously" injured.

You never know what the Pacific Ocean is going to throw at you. <BR> <BR>This vid is more what it was like to be in trenches so to speak. Something like three broken bones. <BR><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCLZ9Z3gJQ8&amp;feature=player_embedded" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCLZ9Z3gJQ8&amp;feature=player_embedded</a>

Wow people never cease to amaze me. The ocean is a powerful force foshizzzle.

jr-it was 2 cases of hot dogs,so that was okay. <BR>I watched the webcast,saw the people get smacked by the wave,and the hot dog venders stuff get hit,and the announcers were jokin about it for awhile <BR> <BR>The people act all surprised when the waves came in,totally unaware of what a tide is.

Anyone ever surf the river mouth in Santa Cruz? I almost died there when I was 15. The waves were coming in so fast and so hard I thought I was coming up for my last breath when suddenly a lifeguard grabbed my arm. I don't even remember it really. I thought I was an awesome swimmer, after all i had swam in the ocean ever since I was little, but man the ocean is so unforgiving.

Weird question... <BR> <BR>Did anyone catch a ride on that biggie as it was coming in? I heard somewhere that the rogue wave topped out at 40ft...

deltagrubber 02-17-2010 3:22 PM

I heard estimates of 50 ft faces, don't know if anyone caught one that big though. Crazy day, I almost brought my 3 &amp; 5 year olds out there, thank god I didn't!!
