Big Wave Day

Big Wave Day, originally uploaded by sgrace.
Yesterday, at the annual big wave contest at Mavericks near Half Moon Bay, a bunch of people were knocked over by a huge wave. This account says it happened just after 9am, and another person I heard mention it said around 9:15am.

I took the above picture with my phone camera and the time stamp is... 9:15am!  I was doing my regular walk down toward Rio Del Mar when a giant set started coming in.  the waves were smashing completely over the cement ship and one extra huge one came right up to and almost over the guardrail of the pedestrian walkway.  I actually stood there with my mouth open at the size of it.

I totally think it was part of the same set that wiped out these crazy people.
