As forecasted both the big NW swell and the Kona wind arrived.
Lanes went off and the hill got populated with tens of photographers... the internet will be soon flooded with photos and videos.
I wasn't there, but Sharon was. Here's my selection of her best photos.
She's going to do her own, so please go check her blog too... you may even run into the toilet paper genie!
Sorry, I have no time nor energy to add any caption... I'm totally wasted and need to go to sleep soon.
It was quite a day for me, in fact. Two hours of surfing in the morning and three of sailing (and some swimming to get back in after having broken a fin). Both sessions at Kanaha.
Sailing was so good that after I got back in to replace the fin, I thought to put the helmet cam in action.
Unfortunately, one of the most disappointing outcomes ever. I must have fucked up the sequence of start and stop (it was a while I didn't use it) and at the end there were only three usable (shitty) clips.
I'm a bit bummed for you guys, 'cause I thought I had some good stuff...
Oh well, I can't share it, but at least I experienced it...
And it should be big waves and more kona for a while, so maybe I'll try again.
In the meantime, enjoy (good luck with that!) the lamest video ever.
PS. Fantastic concert by John Cruz last saturday night at the McCoy theater. I may well be done with concerts anywhere else than the McCoy... the acoustic is just too much better!
Damn, there's Ziggy marley playing on Dec 9th at the amphitheater: that means outside, with a hell lot of people (mostly drunk/stoned) and bad acoustic... now, what do I do?
