The first day of the swell blew some minds, with word..Read More →

As the northern Pacific storm system comes alive each winter, powerful swells begin marching across its vast expanse. Within days those..Read More →

Isn't technology great? It's only been a week since a massive storm off of Japan launched a monster swell at the West Coast and Hawaii. Having already seen the relatively tame action that greeted Southern California, in Huntington and Los Angeles, it probably isn't a shocker that Hawaii was crazy-big and scary.By Hawaii standards, the swell wasn't astronomical, not even an Eddie-worthy day at Waimea, and the paddle-brigade that has been shunning the PWC in favor of human power..Read More →
