Good luck, as you will need it with increased size.
Acid drop is the type of wave you wish for, but when you get there you wish for something a bit less acid-like.
The classic hawaiian wave, beautiful to look at, beautiful to ride.

- I heard a story about a pro surfer back in the 60 who would to drop acid and go big in Kauai I wonder if that where the name for these spot came from. Although I surfed here and it’s a gnarly wave to drop in to so who knows.

Going 2 Kauai In December - I am going to Kauai in December and am looking for some good spots to boogie board. I've been boogie boarding for about 5 years though not consistant. I am an intermediate rider and am looking forward to riding some good waves. Thanks, Kawika
