Saturday was an epic day of surf and sun. The entire 3 day weekend was special and had everybody out along the coast enjoying themselves. Saturday January 19th the swells started with a 28 second period and stayed solid at 23-20 second period for 24 hours, that only happens every 5 years or so. The swell size in the data was only forecast to be 2.8 meters (8.4ft), but the frequency was so far apart the entire coast experienced extra powerful very fast moving waves ranging from 6-12 feet.
Overlay perfect Santa Cruz indian winter with 70 degree weather and no wind.
Great weekend for local hero Pete Mel to win the Mavericks Invitational in perfect 15-20 foot surf on Sunday Jan 19th. Congrats Pete!
