Yep, you got it.

Because it increases the volume of moving water each cycle it also accelerates the current velocity, particularly on the outside of the channel. i.e. directly across from Gemini, and up near Leach Park. That's why they had to put in those groynes.

It's possible sand will start to fill in north of the break, as water is lazy and it will take the shorter path so the currents north of there will drop a lot.
Take a wander along that boardwalk opposite where we had a beer and check with the fishermen in a week or so. Bet they say the tides aren't as strong as normal as it nears the full moon.

Always takes the path of least resistance.

Steve's like a great big horny spawning salmon ... nothing stops him swimming against the tide.

This wave of Asher Pacey’s is mental. Check out how flat his board is and he does it with ease..

This one of Margo’s is super cool and the dude rides a 6’8 and paddles.
The line he takes on that wave is perfection I reckon.

So sick.
The only thing in hindsight would be to pump up a tiny smidge to a slightly higher line off the bottom after the turn to make the barrel instead of slowing right down.
It’s a kirra barrel after all, not Honolua.
But then again, if you make the barrel you weren’t deep enough .

Good to know that I have indeed been doing it properly for all these years ... and there I was questioning my technique.

Both sliding down and getting lip smacked or going high and getting lip launched doesn’t count.

Some of the footage of guys on longer boards looks insane.
