that's slightly above normal for north shore on Oahu....

today report:

Aloha, this is Kekoa with the report for Tuesday morning

This Morning's Surf Report: Solid but inconsistent surf rolling into country shorelines today with nice conditions. Surf is in the head high to overhead high range with some inconsistent sets in the double overhead high range at select locations. Light tradewinds will provide typical side to offshore conditions for country shorelines today.

**The Volcom Pipeline Pro is ON today.**
WEATHER:

Mostly sunny. Isolated showers in the morning. Highs 76 to 82. East winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 20 percent.


rogue waves do suck, but steady 20's are fun...

Isn't the cost of living in HI very high? Price wise.

if you are into eating at restaurants?
yes..
housing is high too,
but
if you like spending time outdoors, cooking and eating fresh fruit, veggies and fish?
it is actaully reasonabale...
you can't do that here for less...

heck there's more "public recreational land" (read free touse)
on Oahu than there is in the whole state of
MS... it's almost all private here.

a big plus for me now would be the steady flow affluent customers,
but alas,
the wifes work has us stuck in the MS mud for now... all things do pass and so will this.. [Big Grin]

they do have a lab or two there that my wife
could work in but the work is too mundane for
her(so she says anyway) [Wink]

besides? i am too old and beat to hell now
to jump back in the big waves anyway...

It's funny when you look at some of those waves on film or pictures they look big,
but when you look at them up close and personal (like in the water) they look hugh.

A 25 footer when waiting on a surfboard has got to make you think twice why you entered the water,
especially if you went out on a nice fairly small day just to do a little surfing.

Can you imagine you are a non local figuring you'll go to Mavericks
to surf some small waves get those bragging rights to tell all your friends,
then a hugh set comes up... ouch

yeah, i agree, i was just making fun of
the california surfers [Smile]

seiously? i grew up on the Atlantic coast
and a five footer was a big wave...
it was a waste of my time to even try to surf there IMO, but i did..

i'd also rather sail the Pacific than
the Atlantic, those five footers beat the
hell of you in a small fishing boat...

Atlantic Tuna is usually tastier than
Pacifc Tuna IMO tho...

Here is a place i am very familiar with.

Not a surf board kind of place, but well known for it's shore break and body, bodyboard surfing.

It isn't so much that liberals are ignorant. It's just that they know so many things that aren't so.
