Amazing colour in the wave, super shot
larrybeard December 20, 2013
This is one of the few spots to catch the sun in the wave. And it's only for 4 months out of the year. Thanks

Awesome image - I may be wrong, but I assume from your commentary that this consists of multiple shots merged together. Congratulations.
larrybeard December 20, 2013
No, this is one shot. This has 3 waves all converging at one time. This is the only beach in So Cal this gets this dramatic. Thanks for the comment and have a great day.

Changing tidal surges can create some very dramatic waves at this amazing beach. This beach has a jetty on the south end. The waves bounce off the jetty creating a secondary wave. This secondary wave combines with the next wave and multiplies its power and intensity. With the up coming tide, the waves change in a big way. The rising tide creates a third wave as the water rushes down off the beach. This is called backwash. This backwash slams into the on coming waves. Complete Chaos!
