    Today the surf has cleaned-up & the action is very exciting at Pipeline (the left) & Back door (the right).

    There are some double overhead waves & deep barrels today.

    Hawaiian time is: 10:37 AM

    The action starts @ 8 AM Hawaiian time when the conditions are contestable.

    What an exciting final that was!

    John John Florence (HAW) won the World Title, second in a row.

    Jeremy Flores (FRA) won the Pipe Masters w/ a last few seconds wave he caught & scored a 8.33 to clinch the win.

    Griffin Colapinto a 19 yo kid down the coast from me (San Clemente, CA) won the Triple Crown w/ the most points in all 3 Hawaii Triple Crown contests surfed this month.


    Surfing is a very exciting sport to participate in, “Only a surfer knows the feeling”.

    *Next year (2018) some of the WSL contests will be dropped & 2 new/other locations will be added including the WSL/Kelly Slater wave machine in Lemoore, CA, not sure how big they can crank-up the machine for wave size, have to wait-and-see.
