Major False Alarm -- 5/28/01
A week prior, people in the lineup were raving about a series of lows that were developing around New Zealand. It looked like it would send a solid south swell this weekend, starting Sunday.
With that info, I decided to try and maximize my surf and shoot for a Memorial Day surf. As it turned out, the complex set of lows never created a solid fetch--nothing materialized.
Still, Justin and I decided to make the most of it and surfed Lighthouse. Conditions were pretty standard, with moderate trades blowing in some tiny windswell.
I didnít have that great a sesh on my tanker. However, Justin got a few nuggets, including a little coverup that came out of nowhere.
The crowd was very sparse. In fact, by the time we got out, there was only a single surfer in the lineup.
Once again, it was another false alarm for South Shore surf. Such is life.
Aloha from Paradise,
