Cool Surfline feature on some of the biggest waves paddled into (as opposed to being towed into). After clicking on the link, you can skip the add by clicking in upper right corner

That's a Great shot jefe!
Thanks for posting the Surfline article Chris!
I think that Andrew Louis and Rob Brown covered the event eloquently providing not only dynamic action stills and video but also a very human perspective!

We've been covering this monumental surf expedition on Surfing v. Climbing... Complimentary Pursuits upthread 942,950,952. Thanks to my friend Greg Huglin who was out there those days as well.

Many of that crew will be over here on Maui for the Peahi paddle contest which could be as early as next week so the talk on the beach has it.

We have yet another "Warning" level swell predicted for today and yet another even larger for a few days later.

It's game on for some!
I've decided personally that "High Surf Warning" level is just too big for my comfort window. After three back to back incapacitating injuries last season and similar results over the last decade of surfing and wave sailing the north shore in winter. Advisory is one thing but Warning is a whole different beast!

Light winds and big swells today....paddling is another fun option. RE: the vid shows 6 man can be fun at times but I prefer the oc-1. This morning's paddle was beautiful, great visibility and bath tub like conditions and its a similar peace found in climbing an easy route. A couple weeks ago paddling around Makapuu the swells and wind make it feel more like a challenging route where your senses are tuned in and the outcome is not guaranteed.

Whether on a 55ft sled with the spinacker thrashing, with 5 others paddles in air wootin, on my 1 man with the forward 8 ft submerged, sliding down the face or on my 8'6" leaning into the bottom turn, it's all surfen. As much as I tried to move to Colorado to be in he mountains, there was a point where I realized the incredible outdoor fun that is available in abundance here in the Islands.

Enjoy the vid, not me, team primo getting ready for the Molokai Hoe

Aloha,
Will

Second, Third, and Fourth Point.
I have friends that have hector connectored from the top of Third Point all the way through First, which is out of view on the bottom and a long point on its own.
Something like five minutes of surfing one wave.
Just Second Point alone can provide rides over a minute.
Punta Pequena is amazing.

Here's a shot of First Point with Second in the distance on a down day.


look at all that sand! Most years the rock at First is an island at most tides.

Cool thread and pics! Have not been on Supertopo in some time! Man, I was climbing a ton prior to the end of 2009. After moving back to Cali, just been surfing... 3 to 4 times per week - more when there is swell. Love it. Need to get back on that rock!

Nice!!!
I was just talking to my brother, who lived in Central America forever, that I've wanted to go to El Salvador. All those points look so good.
Care to share more about your travels?
