I exposed this shot one sunday afternoon recently, the light was real harsh, but the waves were of good quality. Shortly before I took this picture, a newbie got caught in a rip current on the inside and ended up being dragged into the jetty. She ended up banging up her funshape pretty bad, but luckily was she was uninjured. I am always surprised how so many people under-estimate the ocean and over-estimate their ability to handle the conditions. This day was consistently several feet overhead with a strong drift and alot of water moving around on the inside. Clearly not a day for a novice.
