Lets go back to the swell of decades...

Some deep carves and high airs all over the south shores for 10 days straight. Not since 1980 have we seen such a run of swell. It's was 6' and up for 8 days straight with plenty reports of 10' sets. There's were 3 storms with the 1st one having 2 pulses. Swell one hit Thursday 5/16 reaching up to near 8' at select spots (honest). This storm 'occluded' or stalled allowing another pump Sunday at about the same size. Then #2 storm cranked it Monday and #3 Wednesday. Thursday the 23rd still had those 6' bombs.

... The other element that made this series of south swells unsurpassed in memory or record was wind. We had lite and variables with some NE too. The seabreezes werent as bad as they usually are and didnt last as long as they usually do...The overlapping events made so many reefs 'do their thing' that everyone was as stoked as can be. Hopefully we live to see another beautiful freak of nature...Aloha and Mahalo to Kaz and the Hawaiian South Shore crew. gq
