Surfers hoping for the big one by joansmor

Surfers hoping for the big one

When I went to the coast on Saturday, I specifically went to Gooches Beach, which is an excellent surfing area. There was a whole line of surfers on the beach. Must have been over 50 surfers in the water. Most were sitting and looking outward. I don't know whether the waves got better for surfing, as technically I need a beach parking permit to park where I was and a policeman was parked just a but down the road. So I took a couple of quick shots and left. Not a fabulous photo but I wanted to show how crowded the beach was with surfers.
Nicely captured, love to watch surfers wait for the big one!!

Over 50 surfers!? Must have been fun to see so many waiting patiently for the big wave. Love the wave rushing in to the shore.

They are a breed of their own - however hopeful!

So surfers have traffic jams or wave jams? That's a lot of surfers! Their black suits really pop out of the water. Good shot.

Nicely done - I've never tried it so I don't see the attraction :-(

@joansmor OK, the big stuff when they get right into the middle of a big curl wave and ride it through 360 deg, that I get... the rest - no!

@vignouse I imagine it feels like sailing when the wind catches in the sale of a schooner and the boat lays on it's side,

@joansmor They're kissing cousins I guess...
