On the 24th and 25th of July, Southern California was pounded with a massive south swell.
As most of the attention focused on well known surf spots like The Wedge, Paulo Prietto and Exile decided to find some fun waves right at home.
At 5:30am Steve Taylor and Paulo launched the Exile Ski at Dana Point Harbor and headed towards South Laguna. Meanwhile, Aaron Peluso scouted the conditions at several breaks. Aliso was shaping up the best during the very low tide which made the usually secretive tow session very much more public...
...which was all good as far as we are concerned!
It was a little dumpy and a little closed out but the waves were huge and it was good times for all involved. Check out the video from the two day session below.
