False Alarm -- 7/2/03
Date: July 2, 2003
Words: Buoy #2 was pinging solid at 6' 17 seconds, so we had high hopes for a good session. On a lark, Buddy, Rich and I decided to check out Threes in Waikiki. Surf was disappointingly small, mostly navel-high with the usual mental crowd. After floundering around for a while, we decided to cut our losses and go somewhere else.
Ended up at Lighthouse, which was crowded and had a strong cross-wind. Surf was definitely bigger there, but way more chaotic with the chop and windswell mix. I had a few late drops, but nothing special. In no time flat, I had to leave.
These south swells are so wishy-washy. Can't wait for winter.
Aloha from Paradise,
