More Massive Surf

Posted on Dec 08, 2009 by in Contests, Surf Report, SURFING

This is a big week for the surf on the North Shore of Oahu. We’ve started to see the first part of a massive two-day swell generated by Typhoon Nida in the Western Pacific followed by more swell, and then more. It’s been forecasted that the waves this week will be the largest surf to hit the seven mile miracle in 40 years. When the waves get this giant, its both good and bad for the people of Hawaii, bringing epic surf for all those who desire to ride the waves, and at the same time causing destruction on homes and closing main highways, inconveniencing all Hawaiian residents as well as visitors. Wave heights were already well above warning levels of 20 feet in recent days as surfers rode 25-to-30 foot face swells at the O’Neill World Cup of Surfing. It was some of the largest surf to be seen since the start of the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing. These swells coming in are so large they practically wrap around the island creating massive surf everywhere. Hundreds of people line up on Kam Highway and on the sand to watch the big wave riders at Waimea Bay, and everyone is excited for the Eddie Aikau competition to get underway.

    Too bad the bra boys weren’t out there. They would have taken first place in a second, bra.
