There are already a few really good photos shared from last week's big swell. Here are my contributions from the mix. I haven't shot surf in months, so please excuse the rookie mistakes. Please CC them and help me improve! Enjoy!

1-3 This guy was showing off his air skills as the swell began to build up.

4-7 Some guys took heavy beatings when the swell got well overhead.

Nice set...where did you shoot, LJ? I was able to get a fun surf session on Thursday before the swell peaked and yesterday on the tail end.

I wish I could have shot Friday AM as the lighting was good and met a few guys at Cliffs and Blacks that shot all day.

Thanks. The first 3 were from Scripps on Thursday afternoon. The rest were from Big Rock, just south of Winansea on Friday morning.

I didn't realize I'd forgotten to post this shot from the set. It's one of my favorites from that last swell. A little out of focus, but I like the shot anyway.

That's a nice tight shot and wish I was on that board!
