Lots of Photographers will be editing photos for days after this last massive shot of tropical swell, courtesy of Hurricane Marie…and I am sure that we will have some incredible photo galleries going up shortly, but in the meantime here is just a taste of what we saw yesterday…

Wedge Explodes for 4th of July Weekend

Wedge Explodes for 4th of July Weekend

Crowds come out in droves when a big swell coincides with a holiday weekend. While a number of the world’s-best hopped flights to J-Bay and Puerto Escondido, there were crowds aplenty to fill our local lineups. If you knew where to look this 4th of July weekend, southern California offered as many drops and beatings as a Puerto session right here at home.

From a surf standpoint Newport is a veritable smorgasbord of spots packed into a small section of coastline. In Newport it is possible to surf [...]

Santa Ana River Jetties, Newport Beach, Orange County, California

Most people consider the zone that starts directly south of the Brookhurst Outflow and runs to a couple hundred feet south of the Santa Ana River Mouth to be the actual River Jetties surf spot.

56th Street, Newport Beach, Orange County, California

56th Street, Newport Beach, Orange County, California

The jetty at 56th street is the most popular and famous surf spots in the Newport Jetties area. It is sometimes called the “100-hottest yards” (and other similar sorts of nonsense by the marketers in the surf industry)…and the name stems more from the type of surf talent that surfs there than the actual surf [...]

Lower Newport Jetties, Newport Beach, Orange County, California

Lower Newport Jetties, Newport Beach, Orange County, California

The lower Newport Jetties are sort of like 56th street but without all of the bells and whistles. The jetties are a little shorter, the sand doesn’t groom out quite as well, and it doesn’t really get that great until you get a good combo swell. In fact the lower jetties are actually notoriously known [...]
