easy, one of back to back days, dec 17 and 18, 1995 or 96...Santa Barbara...huge storm out of Alaska moved south to project massive surf perfectly into our little south facing nook.
One of the days was bigger and cleaner, but more crowded, however on the other day, I was out at Rincon, one of the top 3 most popular surf spots on the mainland, and it was crowded as usual, but the winds were going off making it choppy and hard to maintain any sort of position in the lineup. For some reason or another, on that day, 100+ people struggled and battled the elements and for the most part got owned; while I walked way up the point, paddled straight out and just caught wave after double and triple overhead wave all by myself until I was spent.
