To answer all of your questions, the last time we saw waves of this magnitude was about 10 years ago, during the El Nino storms. These waves were generated by a strong Pacific storm near Hawaii. Sadly, a surfer died off the SD coast yesterday. Other surfers found him floating fac-down with his board still attached to him. The lesson here is to not test mother nature.
