The activity in the Pacific Ocean has been turned up to an 11 this week, with spots all up, down and off of the California coast seeing epic waves. Cortes Bank–an elusive big-wave spot located 110 miles off the coast of San Diego made famous by Larry “Flame” Moore and Mike Parsons–has awoken from its slumber lately and lured some of the best big-wave out to the middle of the ocean for the filming of HBO’s “100 Foot Wave”–and to fly down massive walls of water.
Not everyday Cortes breaks, so be sure to give the footage from yesterday (above and below) from Tucker Wooding and Pedro Bala a close look. Featured big-wave surfers include Lucas Chumba, Will Skudin, Garret McNamara, Justine Dupont and more.
