Should be some good viewing, Pipe is nuts on these rising swells.

Was about to jump in this morning but it just didn't look good early in the morning. Hung out and everyone actually came out of the water. Figured it would get better after I left but I knew I eventually would not be able to handle the surf, so I left.

It seemed to literally jump from 4 feet to 15+ feet over the course of about an hour. I surfed V-Land, and it went from small, to good, to washed out, to screw this in the couple of hours that I was out. The waves were really good if you were in the right spot, but the paddling was constant and you had to sit in about three feet of water to get into anything. Lots of water moving around.

Swung by Pipe on the way home. Huge, third reef sets breaking top to bottom. Three guys out, including Mike Stewart. Didnt see anyone get a good wave. Did not look fun at all. Madmen.

Sunset looked really good. Sorry, YCBS.
