HPS boards are mostly a waste of time out there. The shape of the wave better suits a longer rail line and less rocker. Have seen plenty of otherwise good surfers out there scratch around on shortboards.

My beef has always and only been with the realistic range available to the average Sydney working stiff

3 foot plus Wanda beach. Glorious south swell lines fanned by a gentle offshore westerly, peeling off down the line. Some flawless waves in the mix. Again surfed the old 6”11 pintail single fin. Fully addicted to the feel of it at the moment. Effortless glide, simple climb/drop lines and cutbacks.
Same up here first thing. And bizarrely, bugger all people (further up the beaches).

Couple of fun ones before the tide swallowed it up. Water temp seemed to have dropped a bit.

Yesterday was a good solid swell. Don't know why, but a small crowd around 7am, and only a couple of us at 12pm, surfing in excellent conditions with some double overhead sets coming through.

Just checked Ulus. High tide. Secrets is double overhead plus on the sets, light offshore, sunny, perfect conditions, no-one out. The sets are sweeping down through empty Temples and there is a pack of about 15 on outside corner, but the wind is messing it up a little.

Surfed Hanalei today at lunch. Waist to shoulder high with the odd head high set. Got a cracker right through when I first paddled out. It tends to shut down and section but it's a long wave when they link up. Have to take the Highline. It got crowded as the afternoon progressed.

And no giant Hawaiian is going to smack you down for getting within 1km of them.

Beans when you off the Sunset and Pipe. Although a mate just got back and said the last 2 weeks was pretty small bar a few days at Sunset.

No. It happens even surfing at Waikiki.
I took off a good hundred metres from a Hawaiian guy and we never got closer than 50 metres. He still threatened to pulverize me.
Or do you mean riding a surfboard at Waikiki isn't surfing? :mrgreen:
