Big waves

The Mavericks surfing competition was held on Saturday and ran into some problems when some rogue waves hurt a large group of spectators.  Here's a look at a real Maverick's wave, over 50 feet high, breaking quite a bit offshore:

We went down to Half Moon Bay the next day, just for a fun Valentine's Day, and got a glimpse of the violent sea up close and personal.  This was shot from a cliff high above the ocean - those continuous waves, breaking at the beach, are probably 15-20 feet high:

I don't ever recall seeing the Pacific so active.
