As you know we just got blessed with the biggest south swell of the year which only means good things to me. I have been wanting to search the south shore by boat looking for a decent, hidden, uncrowded wave to surf for a while now and we did just that on Tuesday. After inviting a couple of the boys and Fitted designer gal Christina who I must mention was the only one down enough to show up we set off on our search. Launched from Ala Wai and turned right towards reef runway with eyes peeled for anything with promise. Make it all the way to Hickam AFB and still nothing but big, sharky, murky waves very uninviting and with just a two person crew neither one of us were very eager to hop in to the unknown. Then Christina gets a text form her man recommending we check rice bowls in front of Diamond Head so we turn around and haul ass back down the coast. We find what we think is Rice bowls but the wind is blowing hard and the peak is all over the place and I wasn't very comfortable anchoring the boat in the not very defined channel. By this time we are beginning to feel like the picky surfer that drives from spot to spot in his car and never even ends up surfing because nothing is good enough. Screw that shit. OK time for the captain to make a decision and here it is, we are gonna go straight to the crystal blue waters of 3's anchor and get barreled. I know it wasn't the exotic break you were envisioning but who can deny that with a little size 3's is one of the premier waves on the south shore. Not me. Anyways luckily for you guys Christina had her Gopro with home made mouth mount handy and was able to take a couple snappos for your enjoyment. Always good to get out there because as the old saying goes... "you can't catch them sitting on the couch". Aloha - RM
