The following drone video was filmed at a beach that is local to me, so I wanted to share. Swami’s is in Encinitas, California, and Encinitas is a city in San Diego County. This is a beautiful area, I often ride my bicycle through Del Mar, Encinitas, Carlsbad and Oceanside, so I am very familiar with the spot that was filmed.
Swami’s Surfing – 2016 El Nino[DRONE FOOTAGE]
Drone footage captured by Anthony, check out his channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUnS…
Filmed January 30th, 2016 at Swami’s in Encinitas (San Diego) California.
El Nino has been bringing a whole lot of waves, and they were pretty big at Swamis this day! I think the report said 6-10 feet, although I don’t know if I saw any 10 footers.
Definitely overhead though.
I don’t surf at Swami’s very often because of the crowd, but it’s entertaining to watch at least 😉
