WELCOMING BACK BIG SURF AT HO’OKIPA POINT

WELCOMING BACK BIG SURF AT HO’OKIPA POINT

Something made me jump into my car shortly after noon today and drive five miles to Ho’okipa Point, one of the world’s most foremost surfing spots. Not because I expected to see anyone actually surfing today. Because I did not.

I had heard that big surf may be revisiting us in Maui again today. And since I have not had a chance to see any while I was in Arizona in the last 2.5 months, thought I’d make the pilgrimage. They are always spectacular and never the same, Just like no two waves are ever alike.

So here are first some panorama shots I brought home from that outing.

Here are now some regular shots of today’s Ho’okipa big surf.

When I say “big,” keep in mind that everything is relative. These were 20-25 foot puppies. We have seen waves at this spot 40-50 ft high, And at the Jaws, which is even closer to my home, they can be easily well over 60 ft.

So let’s say today we had “medium” size puppies by Maui standards. 🙂
