Check the other photos on Ulli's and Sharon's blog.
Check the official ones at the surf contest site.
And if you're in the mood, watch the men's contest live at Pipeline here. I also strongly recommend to check the video section for yesterdays' best rides.
Hey, Kelly Slater will be in the water at 8.30am... damn, I better finish this post soon!
Not before having reported that yesterday (Sunday), as forecasted, a new big NW swell arrived and the wind was a lot lighter than the day before (thank god!). Perfect conditions for a 5.5 and my 87 liters wave board. Lots of fun at lower Kanaha and many close to epic rides.
The trick is quite simple. Stay away from the big close outs and just pick the medium head to logo high waves that peel a lot better...
Then I had the bad idea to start fooling around with the fin of my blue longboard and, even though I learned a few things, it wasn't that much fun anymore.
Let me share the main lesson I learned: experimenting is good, but I better choose a crappy day for it!!!

Billabong pro Honolua Bay... photo contest
This is my little but remarkable contribution to the surf photo contest that yesterday took place at Honolua Bay.
