Big Day at Canoes - oneday i went out, solid 7ft.
every once in a while 9ft bombs. went it gets that big, sometimes it closes out. youcanrideit from canoes, catch a barrel,pullout, connectwith queens and ride um allll the way in. the wave is fat and slow,easy to manuever and ride. canoes is better then queens cuz, it has a longer wall and barrels more often.
another time, it was solid 5ft. during the freedom surf contest, i went out to canoes, this kid, he took off, had the longest wall i eversaw! he gainedspeed, leaned in and got barreled. then he got out of the barrel. and it barreledagain! thenit closedtout. he was inthebarrel and stood up, through the wave curl. his board and legs were under the water while his body was out of the water. SO SICK!

Fun Anyway - Solid south swell size takes care of all the previously mentioned problems. If you complain about the crowd at Canoe's, then you are a part of the problem i.e. you're surfing on a beginner day anyway.

Mahalo Waikiki - Well, at the age of 34 I finally did what I have wanted to do for years - Surf. My wife and I just got back Sunday from a weeks vacation in Hawaii (Oahu, Maui, Kauai and Hawaii, the Big Island) While in Oahu I have read it was a good spot to learn on Waikiki Beach. I took a 1.5 hr lesson and loved every minute of it. Ok, I am sure this is one of the last places a experienced surfer would go but it was perfect for me (a beginner) After the lesson I rented a longboard for a few hours and got a little betterand got a pretty good sunburn! Well, unfortunately I did not get to surf any other beach out on the other islands but I look forward to future trips and maybe hit a few local beaches here on the East Coast (although the water and waves can't compare to Hawaii! Now I am hooked and I cant wait to hit the waves again soon!
