Very Spooky and Different - Cortes Bank is 110 Miles off San Deigo, Not 200. I have gotten towed into Cortes before and it's very different from other waves. You can expect it to be very windy and almost always choppy. Which makes this spot scary is that when your looking around, all you will see is straight blue ocean. No land or anything. Just wondering when that big set will come and scare away the sharks. Totally epic though. I HAVE seen sharks out there so you seriously have to be cautious.

Dolphin schools are the ONLY local surfers out here! - I'm so sick of the childish comments made about this spot, that I've had my buddy from Scripps Institute translate my comment for ALL of you silly humans to read, I'm talking about this after having been read these comments translated to 'dolphinese' language by my Marine biologist.
Here it is:
"Can't we all just get along, whilst stopping all of this Tom, Dick, & Harry-foolery?"

Really? 100' foot?! REALLY?!? - Dude, just to clarify---

was the surf 100' foot, or was it that gay paddleboard that was 100' foot?

I'm just asking...

paddle board time - You guys lets get serious now. This wave is no joke and I think the only way to to paddle into it is paddle boarding. I took out my paddle board the other day and paddled into 100 ft. sets out there at cortes. It was awesome!

here's the directions, Josh - Josh, if you're looking for a 150' sick pit, I know where it is, and I'll give you directions.

1) walk approximately 100 feet to your bathroom mirror
2)drop trou
4)look in mirror

Sick pit, huh brah? Too bad it's no secret.

Im so down to surf this spot - I have hit (or tried to hit) as many big waves as possible across the west coast, including the spots at half moon bay and Lunada, and I would be really interested in surfing this spot some day... But I do need someone to surf with who preferably has surfed this spot or someone with enough balls to go anyway. Any takers?

sweet cortez - I was there! I dropped my 7 foot stick in to the lips of cortez and my board seemed to get harder and firmer the farther I thrusted into the sweet wave. The wave seemed to moan as I dropped into her deep throat. My board and I slipped out her back side and had a cigarette! What an experience
