It started at Turtle Bay and now the Main Event Athletes Prepare to Battle at Sunset Beach

Saturday, 11 February 2012 05:00

OAHU, Hawaii – After 3 lay days since the Da Hui Trials on Monday, athletes are now getting ready for a possible day of action tomorrow as the Main Event will get underway here at the Sunset Beach Pro, presented by Malibu and Starboard and in association with Maui Jim Eyewear. Conditions cleaned up this evening and bode well for an early start tomorrow, although reports of a new swell for Saturday and Sunday might encourage us to hold off. The next call will be at 7am on Friday morning (tomorrow).


Say Aloha as in goodbye to the Haleiwa we know and love?

Aloha All: We all know how bad traffic is already in the country. It's maxed out like code black NW swell. So, now lets put in a Hotel?
Tomorrow, Saturday 2/11, The Hui O He'e Nalu, Friends of Save Haleiwa, Save Sunset Beach Coalition and Friends/Family of Squiddy Sanchez, will be hosting a peaceful protest fronting Haleiwa Beach Mauka park from 10am till 1pm. Purpose is to let Andy Anderson know that we don't want his hotel and molding Haleiwa town into another Waikiki with its over abundance of tourists, rising costs, TRAFFIC and basically removing the country ambiance and feel of the North Shore. Many come to the North Shore to get away from the "hustle & bustle" and relax with their Ohana on the beach or in the parks. We strongly support local business and more jobs, but Haleiwa is a small, quaint town. There is no room for this hotel.

Sometimes after a Surf you dont know what day it is...and you dont really care

Some clean pristine small 2-3' NW got into Traks Thursday 2.9.12 while Country topped out at a stormy 12'; at 11am it was clear and cold with stiff 15-25 NE winds.
The mountains blocked the hardest winds so it stayed smooth at Traks. I got out further west where it was way colder and stiffer offshores at 3-5' solid. One out of 20 set waves would run down the reef just right making it seem like you're on some surf trip.
But then, you got spoiled immediately and thought why cant there be more...and there's too many surfers, and its too cold... blah blah blah...but the rest of my day was much better.

Touted as the next great brotherly duo from Kauai, Alex and Koa Smith have been grown up in the spotlight

Touted as the next great brotherly duo from Kauai, Alex and Koa Smith have been grown up in the spotlight. As a standout among his Hawaiian counterparts, the path to a successful career in professional surfing seemed inevitable for Alex. But as he has quickly learned, no matter how many accolades, trophies, and photo spreads you’ve got under your belt, a renewal on your contract is never guaranteed. After parting ways with his longtime sponsor, SURFER talked to a surprisingly optimistic Alex about brand loyalty, brotherhood, and of all things, Costco’s return policy.


Future Hawaiian pros competed at Makapuu Beach

Kahekili Labatte and Summer Hilen have won the Men and Women Open Am divisions of the first event of the 2012 USBA Science Hawaii Regional Tour, held at Makapuu Beach.

It's always great to see riders from across the state competing in difficult and challenging wave conditions.

All division had their standouts, however it was Summer Hilen in the Open Women's, Tanner McDaniel in the 13-17, JB Hilen in the Drop-Knee, Kawika Kamai in 12 and Under and Kahekili Labette in the Open Am that really stood out in their respective division.
