Breaking waves on 4/20: Shore Acres High Surf Advisory

Not sure how many of you have seen this.. but a friend produced this video of the crashing waves at Shore Acres State Park.

Check it out:

It's a rare event in April.. and lots of photographers were out to catch the action. This is done by the same people that did the awesome timelapse 'Finding Oregon' http://vimeo.com/32852978 and 'Finding Portland' http://vimeo.com/41011190
I take pictures sometimes. And sometimes I post them here:

Years ago, we were on Simpson Beach (inside Shore Acres) as a massive storm rolled in at high tide. Pretty crazy down in that little hole.

The waves on Easter Sunday were huge at the Oregon Coast. They were going clear over the top of Cape Kiwanda at frequent intervals
