"Take-off looks trickier than I thought." Wait until you paddle out and it's right there in front of your face. I think I will just paddle back in. :)

Or if that's too difficult I will paddle for Waimea Bay and try to get in that way under cover of dark, save me some embarrassment.

Ah it’s not that hard, what’s hard is picking the right wave out of a crowd. If there’s three people out and it’s a soft back end swell like yesterday I bet you’d be all over it lucky al. Like a rash!

Looks steep as fk. Nick - in say the 6-8 foot range - in terms of criticality- how does banzai pipe compare with redsands or cowries in SH ? Because that’s proper heebie jeebies surf.
