Finless -- 10/13/05

It was tougher than it looked out there

Date: Oct 13, 2005
Time: 1230--1400
Spot(s): Westside Kauai
Conditions: Sunny and onshore
Swell: Solid north swell
Surf: 3-5' Haw'n

Words: Was on Kauai for work and got a chance to jump in the water. Surf was nice looking but actually quite tough to manage. A sandbar on the inside section just was making it heave, with more backwash than I recall ever being there. Ended up busting off a fin on my last wave. Argh!
