Woke up to a fresh swell pushing into Rincon this morning with the buoy slowing working it’s way up to about 7@15. I’m telling everyone who will listen that in the five previous trips I’ve made down here, I have never seen so much swell! I had even joked with David on the way down that there would be days that he was going to wish he had a longboard. The joke seems to have been on me, as most days it’s simply too big for me to get out. Even the more sheltered breaks up in Aguadilla are seeing overhead waves during the peaks of these recent swells. Can’t a girl just get a cruisy, shoulder high, right point to practice her noserides on?!
Hazy Maria’s at dawn…
I cruised up to the Lighthouse (Punta Higueras) to get some shots from above. The monster on the right is pushing in from outside Indicators and then wrapping around the point to Marias. (David’s actually inside the wrapping wave on the left, he’s just so tiny, you can’t see him.)
We had a brief rainbow pop up over Indicators this morning.
Another view from the Lighthouse, showing all the different peaks from Marias to Dogmans.
Wave, sucking up on the point at Marias.
The swell is supposed to peak around noon today and I don’t think I’m the only one hoping this afternoon and tomorrow have something a little more manageable.
