Big Wednesday in San Diego

While it was nothing like that other Big Wednesday back in 1998 in Hawaii, yesterday brought the largest waves in a few years to San Diego. Regular sets were 10-12 feet, and there intermittent sets to 20-feet, and even a higher rogue wave that swept across a local well-traveled road.

Some good pics of the carnage in La Jolla here, including the following one of a bunch of surfers getting caught inside:
