Shark attacks feared in Hawaii after molasses spill

Hawaii health officials have warned swimmers and surfers to stay out of the waters near Honolulu harbour after a leak of 1,400 tons of molasses killed hundreds of fish, potentially attracting sharks.

The Hawaii department of health deployed three boats to remove the dead fish, and they were expected to remove thousands more in the coming weeks, said a spokeswoman, Janice Okubo.

A brown plume of sweet, sticky liquid was spotted seeping into Honolulu harbour and Keehi lagoon on Monday after a leak was discovered in a pipeline used to load the molasses on to ships operated by Matson Navigation Company, the health department said. Matson Navigation is a subsidiary of Matson Inc, which has provided Pacific-wide shipping services since 1882.

"Trestles is such a fun wave and the closest you can get to a skate park,” says tour standout and Hurley athlete John John Florence. “I think Kelly has been surfing Trestles for so long that he knows what works and what doesn't out there. To win at Lowers, you are going to have to mix power surfing with airs because everyone is surfing at such a high level on tour these days.”

Want to surf like John John?....His new signature fins will get you closer

 

John John Florence has been a surfing icon for years. Growing up on the sands of Oahu's North Shore, he's been in the thick of the surfing world for well over a decade now. He's 20. He's been riding Futures just as long. 

"John John has been a part of the Futures family forever. He's always been one of our primary test pilots, and his involvement in developing this new fin was unreal," said Vince Longo, owner of Futures Fins. "Particularly during this recent period, where he's just taken over." 

The impact he's had on the surf industry over the last two years is unlike anyone else before him. Qualifying for the ASP World Tour and then winning the Triple Crown, three in a row at the Pipe Pro, a World Tour event, Rookie of the Year, the Air-Strike, the Exposure Meter and the hearts of fans the world over, it's been a blur of JJF. And, have you seen his movies.
