Great timing and colors on this capture, David. Can't believe Ventura got waves like that. So glad to see a post. I've missed your work. #6240503

David W. Orias July 28, 2008

Thanks Dominick and Melissa.

Ann, this particular spot is well known in the surf community for the hollowness of the waves in the fall and winter when there is a large Northwest swell. #6240575
