Rec. Center - Pokai Bay

26 mars 2009
- Overall not a bad day - It was just a lot smaller than I thought it was going to be and I was getting a little frustrated at trying to fight with all the SUP's out there that were catching all the waves...

The Party's Over - It was pretty bad today. The strong offshore wind kept pushing the whole lineup away from the break, the swell wasn't all it was cracked up to be today, and it was pretty crowded too. All told, I got a few waves in and a bad day of surfin

Day after the Super Bowl - There was supposed to be a decent swell coming from the north west so I went to check out tracks and it was totally flat. I took the 20 minute drive a little further north to the rec center just to see what was up and, apparently, the swell started

Skipping work I - The lineup was me and some guy on a stand-up. I struggled with the 7'6" so after paddling around for 20 minutes, trying for four or five waves and catching one of them, I decided to paddle back in and grab the 8'6". Once I got out

March any good? - I will be in the area for two weeks in March and I am considering staying that PARC. Any decent swell on this end of the island in March? I have reservations else where but would divide my time if the waves are decent.

This Place Rocks! Three Times a Year Maybe - I say that in jest. It can be fun whenever the West is on. But usually small since it is somewhat protected on one side by the cemetary jetty and the other side (toward Makaha) by the manmade boat harbor. When the azimuth is right on shore though. This place can be awesome. I'd say it happens about 3 times per year with 10 foot plus faces. I find it best when the far outside is breaking - you have to paddle out to the harbor entrance (watch out for boats - my buddy lost a toe to a prop by a drunk in a boat) and catch rights. Face value is every bit 10 to 12 feet with a few bigger sets. That is "Hawaiian" 1-2 feet by the way. Inside is OK but always crowded on big days. The big outside wave reforms again on the inside twice before hitting shore.
