Yesterday was fun! Surfed RB's twice, six hours total. Some caves out there. And yep, it was crowded.


I've been banned from better websites than this one.

I was out when the canoes got swamped. I yelled at them to ditch their paddles we would help gather them. They didn’t. The surfers helped them huli the boats back and paddle out. It took awhile for them to bail the boat and paddle in. #4 must’ve been hurt cause he wasn’t paddling. The canoe closer to Magic Island didn’t take in as much water and reset faster. I talked to an older Hawaiian paddler. He said in his crew #5 is suppose to hold the paddles while the rest of the crew huli/flip the canoe back right. He said ah they never practice huli drills. I told him they got one live action drill. They were super lucky no one got seriously hurt and the ama didn’t break.

That was pretty sketch out at Bowls. So awesome to see so many surfers help push the canoe out to sea. I got sucked out with the current afterward. Thanks for checking on me Troy (think was you). Went in after that.

Still was crowded.

I was scratching for the "channel" on this one. Check where the red buoy is. Look like you in front of me Troy.

Good on everyone involved in the effort to help. I love how everyone comes running when it hits the fan in big swells.
