Headplant -- 9/9/06

Yet another very bad wipeout at Sandys, Ryan Beppu photo

Date: September 9, 2006
Time: 0600--0930
Spot(s): Sandy Beach
Conditions: Clean, but patchy clouds
Swell: Mixed swell
Surf: 2-3'+ Haw'n

Words: Was planning on shooting in the beginning, but neva have sun, so I chanced the shorebreak on my old MS E6.

Had an extra high amount of wipeouts this time out (more the norm nowadays). Combination of funky low tide and semi-midlife crisis. I had several *very* bad looking wipeouts, but thank goodness, I got through alright.

After I got enough sand up my nasal passages, I joined Ryan Beppu in the lineup behind the camera. The bodysurfers were going off, charging hard. Here are some of my shots.

Aloha from Paradise,
