Ventura, a coastal gem nestled along California's breathtaking coastline, is witnessing some monster sized waves that have been registered up to 18 feet tall. I stopped by the Ventura Point, near Surfer's Point on Friday, December 29, 2023 to see if any brave souls were catching a wave. Local authorities put out beach closures and warned of potentially dangerous waves that could cause flooding, or worse, suck someone out to sea. Here are some photos that I got of some surfers rising the waves. I tried to capture a sense of just how tall these were. Click on any image below to see more images from the day in a gallery.
