Every summer the California surfing community enjoys the arrival of a long regular swell from the southwest. The origin of the swell is in the winter storms of the southern hemisphere, some in the Indian Ocean, half-way around the earth.

Join internationally renowned Scripps professor Walter Munk, on October 8th from 6:30-8pm to learn how World War II and measurements of Guadalupe Island led to this discovery and what it means for surfers today.
