The Slide -- 4/7/07

Reaping the rewards of a long drive

Date: April 7, 2007
Time: 0700--1000
Spot(s): PL/BD
Conditions: Mostly overcast, clean before the front
Swell: Somewhat mixed with mostly nw
Surf: 2-3'+ Haw'n

Words: Landslide at Waimea Bay late last night once again split the North Shore. I had to get to the other side, so after driving to Wahiawa and getting notified by police, I turned around and drove all the way around the island. Figured I might as well make the most of it, so I jumped in at PL/BD. Surf was better than it looked, with some good overhead ones. Crowd eventually filled in, but it was still fun. Big swell forecast for tomorrow. Should be interesting to see how everyone negotiates the bisected Seven-Mile Miracle.
