Found these old sponging pics on a really old yahoo folder.
They were posted in August of 2009.
I believe July, the month before was when it got up to 34 ft.
There was I believe 2 straight weeks of hard swell.
I know 2 and 3 are me, the 1 and 4 pics I am skeptical but who knows!
I remember the day like it was yesterday.
I got worked about 9/10 take offs, but had a couple good ones.
One of them (the 2nd pic) I did a roll and after hitting the lip it was like jumping off a two story building so I just bailed hard.
I think that was the biggest I’ve ever surfed.
I also believe Eddie Solomon was there (RIP Eddie)..

Before the internet, this was THE insiders guide. 976-SURF morphed into a pre paid fax service, eventually becoming Surfline. The Long family often called the 976-SURF hotline before an upcoming Morey Boogie or Scott Hawaii contest. #backintheday#976surf#bodyboarding#bodysurfing#surfline @classicbodyboarding @vintagebodyboardcollectors @vintageboog
