As surfers walk down the road leading to Black's the feeling of anticipation grows high. That first view of the ocean gives you not only an idea of what the wind is doing at the moment but also an indicator of the swell size. Typically, it is safe to say that the waves are nearly twice as big as those that can be seen from the walk down. So when one sees a surfer dropping in on an oily eight foot wave from the road, chances are they are in for a huge treat when they get to the bottom. If you've ever waked down that road you will know that this is a true Black's greeting.
