Surf is 4-8' with North winds and its really good timing. Makahiki is a festival for hawaiians to celebrate the time of harvest. On the island of Oahu at the famed break of Makaha this is exactly what they did. Quiksilver’s Makahiki brought family and friends to ride waves on everything from SUP, Canoe to tandem. See you there Saturday-Sunday.

There was a sense of inevitability when dawn broke on the much anticipated Mavericks Invitational presented by GoPro. Half Moon Bay was buzzing with activity, but down on the docks salty locals exchanged grim looks as word of the conditions filtered back from the lineup a mile away. The tide was high, the reports said. It’s inconsistent, they warned. It’s still not that big, they complained.
As As surfers, we attempt to spend a majority of our free time in the water, preferably above the water. However this doesn't always happen, especially in big waves. So in order to stay alive, we must train and learn to adapt. This includes things like breath holding, and the of course the best people to ask are free divers. So it is no coincidence, especially here on the North Shore, that the best big wave surfers are also great freedivers.
This is what is about. Somewhere is a World Tour competitor down the road. For now tho' they're just doin' what they love.
