30 ft sunset is very heavy. put into perspective. I have stood on beach (AND WATCHED) mackin wiamea. when the wave lip detonates the beach f- in shakes. scaryiest **** this white boy has ever seen. those guys are bionic and have to order an extra plane ticket just so their balls have somewher to sit
Yeah i bet, got a friend who's out there right now for the triple crown. He said that was the largest they have ran the sunset contest in decades. Ya know if sunset is like that, outer reefs at pipe are cracking. Was tuning into v-land the other day for that lull and it was smokin there. Those rights look rippable. Cali and Haw. this time of year are on a diiferent level.. Nice to see a backside win sunset, more or less an east coaster at sunset.
roger that....I lived there 3 years before even considering surfing the north and even then I was out on what they would consider small. a 10 to 15 foot wave face at backdoor or pipe is so unbelievably fast. its like every drop is an air drop. biggest face on north shore for me was at kammie lands and it was around 22' but kammies breaks real slow compared to all the other breaks around it.... and as you know they consider a 20 footer a 10footer. lucky for me i became friend with a well respected samoan family over there cuz kill haole day at my school was brutal. it is a different world over there and super impressive when an east coast boy like hobgood can do so well. hobgoods, lopez all them boys are the shiznit!
