Black's Seven

Black's Seven

On a typical Black's day it is not uncommon to find well over a hundred surfers in the lineup. However, when the waves exceed a certain height, the lineup thins out significantly. This day was perhaps one of the best days of the year. Double overhead plus sets hitting the sandbars perfectly without a whisp of wind on it. Seven surfers had the North peak all to themselves. The crowd thinned to six after this set as the unfortunate surfer on the inside snapped his board. As he walked up the beach with a half of his board under each arm I could only imagine what he was thinking to himself. 'Why didn't I bring down two boards?'
