    Today they will wrap-up this contest starting w/ Round 5, it begins in 15 minutes.
    The surf they are calling it "Pushing 10-12 foot" that's got to be "Hawaiian measurement" as I watched it a few minutes ago & there were many "Triple Overhead" waves, TO is if a surfer is standing tall @ 6 foot TO is 3x his height on the wave face.

    The World title race will be settled today too.
    here is more on that:
