Mt. Baldy Labor day swell

Postby IVO » Thu Sep 29, 2011 9:27 pm

Forecast on this day(if my memory serves correct) was 30knt 10-15FT..There is no chance these pic could describe how big waves got on the outside,but you could get at least some idea ...There was very difficult,mean,headhigh shorepound just to get through to the outside.Some 15ft+ waves on the outside.


fyi.most pic are coming from great distance and from top of a dune.

Ryan was coming back to beach.

God damn those are huge! You can see the scale of it when you look at Slavi's pic. Where is this again?

The spot is near MC Adrien,,,Slavi pic is W to NW,the heavy powerzone is all the way to the east of that..There's small bay,which could give you some chance to get out from shore between sets rolling in.



I saw bigger waves than this on Lake Michigan,but never this thick.Top 5-6f of wave had that crumble egg crust look,ocen swell,magnificent view!

Sweet Pics Ivo...thanks for posting these.

Glad you posted those before I got my ass handed to me that day. I have to say, I want more again and was having a really fun second session before all hell broke loose. Thanks again to you, Jens and Jeff for helping me get back in.

I'd hate to see what MC would look like today with it blowing 40-50+.

I'm sure reports and pics will come in soon of not already.
