Tsunami Surfing In Santa Cruz ~ Photography By Terry Way

Today was an interesting day in Santa Cruz. The massive earthquake in Japan hours earlier had Tsunami warnings spread across the Pacific. There also was a nice swell running and the best bank the Rivermouth has seen in years. The harbor police took extra precaution but plenty of damage occured to boats and dock structures nonetheless.
Meanwhile, the Santa Cruz Rivermouth was being surfed by a couple dozen locals.

Crowds lined the street to watch the action
