Vibed out....... - This is the only place that I sensed a disturbance in the force. I'm not talking about the locals & other people. I'm talking a spiritual thing, I felt like something was watching me from the palm trees....paddling out through warm water (underground hot springs?) & rough lava, then waiting for waves over a dark bottom...there is something special about this place. Something very heavy went down here, I just do not know the history of this spot.

Very special place - Had a great couple of weeks here- surfed every day; sometimes heavy, sometimes nearly flat but this is a majestic break. Locals are super sweet, resident haole's can be . Lots of respect for the ladies. No bad vibes here on Second Bay. Had my very best wave ever at Bowls. A little stink eye vibe from a few younger locals but overall the BEST surf trip I've ever taken. MAHALO!
