Watch: Mavs // April 22nd
Been a quiet old season for mainland America's biggest wave. Few XL swells early in the year, most ruined by north wind, then long periods of nothing.
On April 22nd a northwest swell hit under less-than-ideal conditions: the wind was never true offshore, however it was enough to slake the thirst of Cali's unsated big wave surfers.
First video is by Tucker Wooding, filming from a boat, and opens with a decent cleanup set, while the second is from Powerlines and is mostly filmed from shore. Many waves are caught from both angles.
Fark 5:08 on the second vid - casually hanging inside catching a few mellow ones, then the rogue set from hell appears
Gotta give it ‘em, takes big balls to be out there. Watched it once,....but for viewing give me Deadman’s any day, watched that one quite a few times.
Is that a shark at 3:43 ??
On the second vid
I reckon it was a seal raddude.
Never a pretty place, but that looked particularly nasty.
Mavs Rockers ....
Not a wave i will ever save up for to visit that's for sure. But i do wonder how many secret spots there are around there for smaller swells.
