Anthony Ghiglia is a professional photographer who lives in San Diego.
He took the gallery photos during a really good swell in La Jolla last winter. I especially like the Windansea photo with the lightning.
Windansea is where I have family roots, and the shack is the epicenter of it all.
Usually when there are swells hitting La Jolla that are this big, I’ll head up to Mavericks, down to Mexico, or go somewhere where I have a chance of scoring world-class waves.
For some reason I stuck around the neighborhood for this swell, and it paid. Stoked Anthony shot some photos of me to go along with the rest of his incredible images.
The surf was as good as it gets around La Jolla for that swell.
