Excellent surfing shots from Mark Boster – Los Angeles Times.
From LA Times:
A storm near Antarctica, Australia and New Zealand has created a strong southwest swell that is hitting the Southern California coast. Pedestrians had to take take quick steps back as waves crashed over Strand Way in Oceanside. The portion of the popular oceanfront street was closed after a pedestrian walking through puddles reported being shocked. Familiar spots like the Wedge in Newport Beach are reporting waves up to 15 feet high.
