Saturday December 11
I’ve always wondered exactly how fast someone goes while surfing and today I finally found out. Turns out Asutralian surfer Dean Bowen had a speedometer attached to him the other day when Rockpiles was 10-12 foot. “Mate I was riding a 7’2″ quad just hauling ass out there and when I came in we plugged it [the speedometer] into the computer and it read 55 kilometers,” he told me out in the water this morning.” For us Seppos that means he was going about 34 miles an hour. “Makes me wonder how fast you could get going at Waimea!” he said with a wild look in his eye.
The waves are about head high today and while it was glassy this morning, an onshore wind came up around 10 making the conditions below average. No worries though, the sun is shining wahines are strutting the beach, time for some bronzing!
Went to the 8th annual North Shore lifeguard party last night at Waimea Falls and it was a blast! One of my favorite bands, Natural Vibrations, opened up for legendary Hawaiian reggae singer Butch Helemano at the beautiful venue at Waimea Falls. The event was held to raise money for the local junior lifeguard program and was attended by hundreds of people. It was a cool evening both literally and figuratively as temperatures plummeted into the 60s…cry me a river right?
