Los Angeles surfers have had amazing Christmas gifts.

Good ol' Santa Claus - a keen winter wave rider - delivered perfect big barrels for everyone at South Bay. With a clean WNW swell, it was barreling time on the West Coast. Oh, and wipeout drama too.

A beautiful chaos, the ultimate surfing wave, a freak of nature, the advanced surfer's testing ground, a specialty wave, the premier tube riding arena, and, ultimately, the Mecca of surfing.
