We just had our first swell of the season here in Hawaii last week and let me tell you…. It was unreal! Actually there are still some waves left and the forecast looks good for the next few days/week.
This first swell was about 4-6 ft (back of wave) and had a nice angle to it, hitting the reef at Mokes really good. Wind was a bit light and onshore, but I was fine on my 6m pretty much all day until late in the afternoon when I switched to my 7m.
Here is a sequence Chuck Harlan captured of me (click to enlarge).
