Good things come to those who wait. Last Friday, the wind along the Santa Cruz coast was very marginal early on and despite going out many of us wound up landing on the point and packing it in. Some of us waited. A few adjustments to the new panther and a half hour later the wind had shifted from side on marginal to side off powered. The waves all began to magically line up forming perfect head high walls and clean sections. Jordan Deltscheff got this killer shot of me popping an off the lip out of the shadow of the wave into the light of the late evening sun. I just love the way the colors work in this shot.
