Default Seasonal Change -- Another indicator

It was only 68 degrees today (has been in the mid-70s most of this month), and foggy this morning. So, the surfers have been donning their full wet suits lately. And, so, another indication here in So. Calif. that the season has changed.

Took this one with my 100-400 lens. The surfers were about 80 yards from shore catching some nice (for us, Selvin) waves. They were awfully close to the pier at times.

I know nothing about surfing, but that looks bloody dangerous to me. Some one should have a word with that girl while she's still in one piece.

Walter,
It all has to do with the seasons. For us this time of the year has some monster waves (20+ feet) crashing down on our North Shore after the winter storms in Alaska. So far only 10+ feet. During the summertime the waves are almost as quiet as a pussycat sleeping most of the time.
Great detail in your photos. That 400mm shot is superb. Good work.
Aloha

Girl? it is not I see that much just cause it has long hair don't mean its a girl... I always wanted to try something like that but I got as far as the plastic float and that ... well getting salt water up my nose burnt like heck.

I like the top one and the bottom one does show a bit to close to the piers at times.. use to see them do this every time I was down in Ventura visiting Gram...times like remembering a boy drowning was one of my worse memories of the Salt water actions..

Nope, NOT a girl. Rather, a woman. I'd estimate in her 30's.
