Welcome Back North Swell

It seems the Northern Pacific Ocean has kicked back to life and is sending pulses of swell our way pretty consistently already, with the latest of these pulses being large enough to make Mavericks break.  Looks like this El Niño people have been talking up for the last year may be the real deal.  Hopefully we can get some good surf before the rain really starts coming down!  Here are some images I’ve captured on my travels around town during this recent swell.
