Westside is smaller than expected. Clean but inconsistent. Might be able to run today but I would probably run just tomorrow.

Not that it factors into the equation but the Surfer Awards is happening tomorrow night.

Contest is off for today. They are planning (hoping) to finish the contest tomorrow.

Total insanity.

Buoys are still ~12 feet at 17 seconds. Tomorrows contest should be interesting.

Too bad Im at a conference in San Diego. Surfed right before I jumped on the plane today, but the Westside (at least where I was) hadnt really filled in yet. Looking to hopefully ride the mat while Im here.

Cant believe how good and clean the above photos look. Blessings to the sandbars who made it all possible and give me an excuse to share this old vid (that I cant figure out how to embed). Co-directing that contest was one of the highlights of my life. So many surfers I love in this video, most of whom I dont see nearly as much as I would like and a few of whom that arent with us anymore.

And still ranks high on the list of best NS bodysurf contests of all time.

Totally agree. Going be heavy.

Went there early this morning it was smallish compared to the North Shore. Eric and Wyatt were out along with Wajdi.

Time constraints with catching my flight kept me below Maile Point.

Sure it was bigger and better further up.

Can't wait for it to start!

I'm glad they pushed Filipe Toledo over Nathan so we can see how he handles beast sunset. (We know Nathan would do just fine)
