this morning was a trip
Downtown was without power
And our building got flooded again
they blocked the Dillingham exit off the freeway so I snuck in from Nimitz backtracking on Dillingham and talking my way past the police blockade by the prison.
the C&C crew was clearing the mess with a bulldozer and a scoop trying to clear the crap out of the river that was jammed at the bridge on Dillingham.
there was logs and 4 inches of mud in our outside parking lot I had to navigate through to get to the door. Should have brought my yard man black rubber boots to work. But that's what you get for being classified as "essential". I was one of the first in a building usually occupied by 800-1000 employees.

Also could barely see driving home last night
It was so dangerous with scared people driving 45 and others going 65 mph making giant rooster tails when they hit the ponding. Reminded me of whenever I go to northshore kauai for vacation.

Kauai's north shore ~
Wind and some rain ... We skated on Kauai. The Hanalei Bridge barely got to 5 feet. The Road into / out of Hanalei closes at 8 feet. (Monday night) Tuesday, overcast in the morning, clearing in the afternoon. Windy. No rain. Cool evening. Midnight. No rain. Light wind.
Ni NI ....

"The highway on Kauai's East side was clogged with cars in one particular area and Kealia Beach was glassy with crispy little waves."

That was a few days ago? Saw a crap load of cars parked on the side of the highway and thought it was someone having a party but making everyone park on the road. I don't normally see cars there at all if that's the same spot. That said...saw a few spots here REALLY light up recently.

About a week ago. When the winds switch up and Kealia gets glassy the" car park" on the side of the road "by the gate" is pumping. Stop next time and walk out to the left over the hill.

Had one of my most fun surfs on kauai at glassy kealia when Hanalei was flat. Hope to score it again sometime!

Will do! "By the gate" is definitely where I saw everyone. Didn't know there was public access there but lots of places here are like that I suppose. There's a place by me where I didn't see anyone all year until recently.

Tread carefully it’s a heavy localized spot.

I ain’t one to talk, I was just sort of rightfully chastised on this very issue last week when I gave a vague description of my spot selection strategy over a 20 mile stretch of coastline here at home. That spot, some, but not all of us, know about it, and it is I believe one of the last semi secret localized gems that rarely truly fires, and when it does, it’s local or by invite only. But my intel could be 17 years out of date from when I was lucky enough to surf it. For all I know it’s a free for all zone now, but I doubt it. In all my trips back since, I haven’t once had real west winds, so I never checked it. Saw some trucks occasionally but nothing that indicated some epic Session was underway. And I’ve been on that island 8 weeks in the last 7 years. im certainly not “claiming that” I only say it to mean I’ve been there a bunch in recent years so I’m not totally out of touch.

Nope! 4th largest in the Island chain. Population, 73,000+. One, can drive from one end of Kaua'i to the other end AND drive to the top of Koke'e and back down to One's starting point in 9 to 10 hours give or take depending on traffic .... which is decidingly becoming quite crowded on the asphalt.
Yup.. outed a place ... and reconfirmed by you. ;) It's not a secret ~
Now everyone knows about it. But, ya got to be driving by the day that it's going off ...
If the cars aren't there, lots of old sugarcane gates still in operation too ... scratch yer head
No worry,, beef curry ~ bum by pau

Yeah I don’t even think that walk is public access. I’ve heard of guys being chased off by Bruddha’s with shotguns lol

Rumour at one time when the area became developed and cleared along the county built bike pathway. Security overstepped themselves. Rent a cop's do security now along the roads of the "gated community." The area surfed is in undeveloped scrub land and surfed on very rare occasions.
all pau, lau lau .....
