Sneaker Wave

Redwood National and State Parks


Rare Footage. This was filmed one morning when the National Weather Service had issued a sneaker wave warning for our coast. This sneaker wave was filmed on Freshwater beach in front of the Kuchel Visitor Center. The ranger was filming for 60-minutes prior to this wave. Ten minutes before this event occurred, the ranger filming had to warn visitors not to sit on the large log that was then filmed being hit by the wave. [The is no audio except the sound of surf and waves]
