The Story of My New Paddle Board ! Busted
I loaned my brand new 9-6 paddle board – luckily to an honorable man …
Uh ohh ! Caught inside – 10 foot wave
You can see the board ready for the full weight of the wave – SNAP !

Tuesday night – the first huge waves show up Big Mike caught this one!
Wednesday morning – its hard to get a sense of 30 foot high waves from a photo but these boats are all anchored behind the break – no boats dashed upon the shore but there were a few boards and surfers.
Big Wednesday !
Look closely – Matt Becker bombing a 20 – 30 foot, big wave – a pro surfer from Santa Barbara – on a paddle board – trunks only!
