This has been an extremely windy spring. It has been blowing non-stop for about a month now. We are finally getting a short break, which is actually nice, because it is giving me a chance to wax up the old surfboard. There is a decent swell running right now so tomorrow ought to be a good surfing day. I managed to get out today for a surf after work, but only had about 40 minutes of daylight left. I still was able to make the long paddle (about 15 minutes) out and catch one good wave. It was pretty big, coming in at a couple feet overhead. Nothing spectacular, but quite fun.
These shots were taken by Steve Hamman at Kuau. The first two shots of the same wave, show a decent set that appeared to suck below sea level. In the last shot, I am coming in for a landing in the white water after a small air off the wave.
