Marie may have weakened from a hurricane to a tropical storm, but it’s still bringing big surf to California.

In Malibu, large swells and massive surf prompted dozens of water rescues.

Well-known big wave surfer Laird Hamilton even stepped in to help by rescuing a surfer who lost his board.

“He was happy, he was thankful, his eyes were big. He was appreciative he was back on the land,” he said.

The man was brought to shore without any major injuries.

According to some local surfers, this is the best surf they’ve seen in more than 30 years.
