It was huge!

Date: February 14, 2008
Time: 0900-1030
Spot(s): Makaha
Conditions: Overcast, but...
Swell: huge NW swell
Surf: 6-10' Haw'n

Valentine's Day had a huge swell hitting Oahu. First ever Stand-Up Paddle (SUP) big wave contest at Makaha went off. I swam most of the way out, then got a generous ride from a jetski the rest of the way. I've never been so far out, way beyond the flagpole. Exciting watching these guys charge the sets. I got caught on a few, but was pretty lucky I think. Just stayed out for like three or four heats, but I had to get to work. Great way to start the day.

Aloha from Paradise,
