Hurricane Marie started as a category 5 storm in the Pacific Ocean, making it’s way towards Southern California with a southeast directional swell producing the best waves of the summer. 92 degree sunny weather at many beaches made Tuesday and Wednesday the time of the season to paddle out and score some bombs.
The hurricane is now a category 2, and many piers and beaches in Southern California are closed to swimmers. Please pay attention to signs and flags and respect the lifeguards, as the swell picks up.
Here’s a glimpse at some of our favorite shots from Hurricane Marie.
