Ping Pong -- 11/7/04

One of the biggest sets of the session

Date: November 7, 2004
Time: 0600--1030
Spot(s): Laniakea/Holtons
Conditions: Light trades, solid crowd
Swell: Rising swell from the NNW
Surf: 3-5' Haw'n

Words: Felt a little undergunned with my 6'5", but made the most of it. Ping-ponged between Lanis and Holtons, but never managed to get into a groove. I did catch a few of the bigger peaks, but nothing exceptional. Ended up hanging at the middle peak with Buddy where it was the best.

Nice to see some of the older riders scoring some great waves. Guys like Ben Aipa, Dennis Pang, Glenn Minami and others were just tearing it up. Inspirational watching them ride.
