Maybe it's time for a trip to Moscow?
Picture this. Dr. know plays Red Square.
You could set up in front of the Kremlin walls next to Lenin's Tomb.
That would be rad!
mmmmmmm? OR, He could be playing domino's with Brittney Griner in detention
but then again, B-5 does have his Moscow Mule wahine to stop by for conjugal visits. :shrug:

** Drove all the way out west but didn't go in. Ma'ili was firing, along with the end of the road. Everywhere else was meh.**

Thought about what we used to call "green lanterns" (Mai'ili) Forgot about Yokohama ~

Ended up surfing the left outside queens. Crazy sand bottom kegging left. So weird. Never seen it before.
Got a stand up backside tube, in the middle of Waikiki. Could not believe it.
Guys were saying it was the dredging project the past couple years.

When the sand disappears from the shoreline, your "sand bottom kegging" is where it ends up, between The Wall and Queen's and behind Canoe's. Watch next time "where they dredge from" in the winter time and fill the beach back in.

Between "The Wall" and Queens, and outside from "The Wall" is "Kuna's" (sp). Only broke on "First Break" days. Some folks said it was named after Conrad Cunha, Waikiki Beachboy and former Makaha Contest winner.


A sweet Big left from the take off that will eventually swing into Queen's and surfer's inside of you would give you the right of way because they saw you coming from a completely different angle from the normally, right hand wave take off area.
If lucky enough to make it through (which I have a few times) you could surf into "baby Queen's" and go right for a bit ,over the reef, swing left, past the old sandbag wall (on your right) and step off onto the beach. It's a wave to smile upon and to look back at the distance that you covered and say to one's self, "holy sh!t" to collect your thoughts on what you just did.
During the old days, Gilbert and Albert Minn's, Waikiki Beach Service was located there and the Lifeguard stand, just to the right where the small cement sandbag wall is.

Your ride, brought back many fond memories & made this ole Man smile ~ :bowdown: :cheers:

I grew up across the street from Queen's (2500 Kalakaua Ave) Barry Kanai'aupuni lived next door and we surfed Queens for hours as pre-teen boys.

Watched the footy again, and compared with pics and vid from past giant souths. That looks to be the swell of a lifetime at that spot. Incredible stuff. Maybe never see that spot breaking like that again in my lifetime. Shades of Hurricane Marie.

Really hoping this thing has some big juice left when it arrives here.
