A decent swell hit
Southern California the weekend of Dec. 12th. A group
of about five surfers were out at Coal Oil Point just north
of Isla Vista near the UCSB campus. Some of the waves
rolling in were easily ten feet high with some even bigger.
This wave rolled in on the "Sands" side of the point.
There wasn't anyone out there trying to surf in this area,
but I bet this wave was close to 15 feet high.
