stop ur bitching whitey - btw is dat large wave actually at olowalu

By anonymous , 02-07-2005

Japan? - What the hell does all that have to do with Olawalu? Any way, it's a really fun wave and often breaks when the swell is really small at other spots. Gets bowly on a bigger swell and barrels are definitely possible. Can be offshore when other Lahaina breaks start to get blown.

to the person who is taking about Japan... - Huh??? Ridiculous. Ignorant. Uninformed.
