High Surf Warning

"Tell me who you love, and I'll tell you who you are."

"He who reforms himself
has done more towards reforming the public
than a crowd of noise, impotent patriots."
Johann Kaspar Lavate

A woman's face is her work of fiction."

We are expecting mammoth surf tomorrow on Oahu's North Shore.

Steadily, these recent days, it has been growing.

Over 20 feet on Saturday,

30 or 40 feet today;

but the really big stuff is expected Monday,

like up to 50 feet-

Or 60!

Cowabunga, Dudes!

40 years ago


was a legedary year of 50 footers,

washed out roads,

waves in living rooms.

and the best golden-age surfers

putting it all on the line.

An extremely strong storm


is aiming it's hurricane force winds

directly at our isle from afar,

driving the waves.

A rare event.

The Eddie Aikau Surf Meet

only runs when surf tops 40 feet.

Tuesday might be the day!

Who was Eddie?

Fans on low
or off,
the porthole above my bed
closed while I'm asleep.
Bring out the blankets,
It went down to 68 last night!
