Shell Beach Sunset Wave Left Beautiful Surfing Iconic

A Classic Surfwanderer Spot

It was one of those stuck at work but all I can think about is surf days. Lucky for me a nice SW was entering the SLO County window and the tide was approaching an unintimidating 1.5 foot low. Grabbed the biggest fish I could find and headed towards the water. When I got there I must have watched it for 30 minutes… wondering if I was wrong about the swell. Then one wave, and another, and pretty soon I was jogging back to my car. Snagged a few fun ones then got out to shoot this picture.
