4:01 pm
they say you have to be selective because the waves are so tricky misjudging one could ruin your whole season. >> it was big. it was a ton of wind and this well didn't, very clean and groomed. it makes it a lot tougher. there were guys that wanted it and they were sitting deep and trying to go on the biggest ones. that takes some guts today.>> reporter: we spoke to the assistant harbormaster who says that you should leave these waivers to the pros. for the rest of us they are best viewed from a safe distance. >> you have to have the skill . you have to know what you're doing. >> reporter: i think you have to know what you're doing and know when to let a wave a past. they said these were lumpy and bumpy so some of these really were, especially treacherous even for the professionals. you have to know which ones to
4:02 pm
take as well as which ones are okay. let's go to a check of the weather. what did you think of the conditions? >> it looked like some fairly clean conditions with the wind picking up in the afternoon to create some top. this swell has been advertised for a few days, a huge swell and as a result the high surf warning is in place. whenever you hear of a swell like this in a surfer once to drive the coast, bill martin did that. he is a surfer. i saw his tweet from pacifica. what did you see?>> reporter: i got a call this one from the news director who said let's get you out to the coast. normally i would curl up in bed and say i don't want to go to bed early but today i drove down the coast and went straight to sharp's park. to see how big the waves are.
4:03 pm
i have been around a long time. we are talking, i was here in 82 surfing. that was a big el niño. i was here in 97 and 98 surfing. here we are in 2016, the third big large el niño and we are seeing surf, i thought waves today as big as i have seen in a long time. we have had bigger days but the size, the immensity of the waves and the amount of power, not the ocean today, you don't see that everyday. the wind -- the waves were breaking easily 50 feet at the tip. back caused a lot of waves around pacifica. they had to close the road at sharps park. you can see that is how it works. the way the point sets up. when i climbed out to the bluff and talk to some of the guys surfing they said it is big. the problem is it is stormy and bumpy. what you have is a swell with a
4:04 pm
lots of west in it. when you have a swell coming from not the northwest but due west that means this well is hitting the beach at mavericks point or pillar point almost perpendicular. that makes a wave very dangerous. that makes it throw up and close out, it closes out the channel. we had injuries at mavericks today. very dangerous. one of the biggest contest they have ever had out here. one of the biggest contest was a southwesterly swell like we see here. i talked to a couple guys and they were all saying i am happy to be out, i love feeling the power of the ocean but very, very dangerous day. swell peaked about noon today. probably 20 feet at about 16 second intervals. the swell is still beefy. it's continues to drop as we headed to tomorrow. the contest, they were never going to throw it, they knew the tide was too big. >> we served together and whenever the waves get 10 or 12
4:05 pm
feet we get a little spooked. can you imagine going on 30 or 50 foot waves? >> reporter: now. i cannot. some of the guys i grew up surfing with and i talked to them and i saw a doctor, he is 63, mark is 63 and he was on his way paddling out about a mile and half out of the break. i am in good shape and he goes do you want to go? i said no. i don't want to go. it is a whole different animal with these guys expect we like to look from the distance. beautiful images today. we will have another update later in the newscast. as far as the high surf warning, that expired but it is high -- downgraded to a high surf advisory. still very sizable surf. here is four point and the break is about half a mile offshore.
4:06 pm
that is where mavericks, we took this picture earlier today from the chopper, the aerial shots and you can see all of the energy bill was talking about approaching the coast line. at mavericks you get a reef that enhances the wave and as a result the wave gets amplified so you get waves on the order of 20, 30 or 40 feet. right now they are still at 15 to 20 feet. we have been talking a lot about mavericks if you are anywhere near the immediate coastline be extra careful because the waves are out there from north to south. usually 10 to 20 feet. very dangerous out there. amazing pictures, mavericks all day long. we will see more of those coming up later. make sure to download our weather app to get the latest forecast and live radar wherever you are. you will find it in the apple or google app stores . today police and several bay area cities once the public's help identifying an armed robbery suspect.
