- It was a lot of fun today. The swell was slowly dropping so it was a little inconsistent.When the bombers came though, it was well worth the wait. A lot of the good ones were going all the way across. It was big enough to keep most of the kooks off o

Laniakea Rocks!!!! - Surfed Lani's in late March at 5-7(Hawaiian) and the rights were long and fast. Caught one for almost a hundred yard ride(Double D will verify!)Not bad for a "haole" from Miami. Great vibes and absolutely no hassling(unlike "Town" crew)

Lani's 2 stars?????? - What the???? People shouldnt be rating breaks that they dont surf, anybody who surfs the country knows when theres a clean 6-10ft North swell (Hawaiian scale) that this place goes OFF!!!! Thats when you start to see all the North Shore heavies start showing up. Breaking from the deep North Bowl or even Holtons and grinding ALL THE WAY THROUGH!!! How can 6-10 ft Grinding North Swell 200-300 yard long heaving rights get only 2 stars? As for the guy that said its best at 5-7ft FACES?!! That flat as far as I'm concerned, barely even breaking. In the 12 years of surfing this place I never seen packs of sharks or even a 15ft tiger shark out there, I see a lot of turtles, which can be just as bad(imagine dropping in over the ledge and busting your fins out on a piece of pop-up turtle reef. So I dont know whats up with that guy. Lani's on a big clean North is one of the best breaks in the North Shore when its doing it's thing. When Lani's is over 6ft(hawaiian) its a whole different game, & yes it gets super unbearably crowded.
