USCG Takes a couple waves on the head
« on: March 03, 2017, 08:45:54 AM »
Our local CG just put this out a few days ago. They did this practice at one of our lesser used local  surf spots.

I think it is open for the public to view.
Make paddleboarding great again!

I almost did after getting my Oceanography degree from Humboldt, we often would go out to the North Jetty to watch and feel the energy from those mega-swells...even climbing up into the light tower...super scary...it would move those granite dolos around...

The Coasties play around (practice) at the Humboldt Entrance on smaller days...but, I've seen their Cutters flipped upside down like toys in a bathtub on bigger days...



I had an Oceanography prof that liked to take our research vessel out on big days...it eventually sunk...;-)

I remember one ginormous during El Nino of '82/'83, where the waves completely broke over the jetty like it wasn't even there...big and a half...much bigger than this...crap your pants BEEEG...and, the Coasties would still play around in it for grins and giggles...
