Surf and climb combo...pretty sweet. My girlfriend and I regularly climb and kayak, and I'm headed to Mex this Friday to hook up with her at Troncones. Gonna be a sweet trip riding waves.

Cheers to all the good vibes!

Somewhere in Tuolumne, sometime early 80's
Olaf:

The image (from the net) of 'ka wa'a kau kahi', I would guess in the middle of the Moloka'i channel, during the Moloka'i hoe race...
Reminded me of the art work of Herb Kane.
If you are not already familiar with his work... you should be and are now.

There used to be a large mural done by him in the burger king in Kahului.


I was quite saddened to see that he had passed.
Ah well... none of us will ultimately get out alive !

Great to hear from you trundlebum! It sounds as though you had quite the climbing trip. I feel there's one of them in my future but not for a while.
I have been getting out wave sailing some but not as frequently as usual.
I took a job remolding Mama's Fish House and the schedule and scope of work is quite hectic but the money and location are good.
I am also in the process of moving back to Kuau so I am pretty sure that there is a bunch of surf and wave sailing in my future since I can walk or skate to the launch at the cove in less than five minutes.
It will be cool to be back in the hood.

North shores - A larger north-northwest swell will peak out around 8-10+ feet( Hawaiian) at those best aligned beaches. There will be a drop for a day or two starting Monday, then a new northwest swell will arrive mid-week…lasting for several days = GAME ON!! Olaf Mitchell

Olaf, the surf trip was off the hook. My lady and I hung in Troncones/Playa la Saladita and had a blast. Small waves (1-2m) and super sunny. La Saladita has the longest left in Mex with beachside bungalow rentals right at the break. Needless to say the place is incredible. Lourdes Valencia owns the property and has a great beachside restaurant. Heading back this summer with the family for 3-5m waves.
Warm water, sunny days :)

Hi Dave, Thanks for the stoke Dude! Your trip report makes me want to go back down to Mexico again. Some of my very best ocean experiences were when I was free wheeling down there living out of my van with absolutely no set schedule or destination. Drop in often!
we are having some good early conditions here on the north shore.
I scored some delightful 8-10' faces on Tuesday.The swell was still up and I was hoping for more wave sailing yesterday but by the time I finished work a rain squall came through and shut the wind down. It looked a bit sloppy for surfing so I addressed domestic projects.
Maybe conditions will be favorable today after work?

Yesterday was real big and gnarly. The faces of the set waves were easely 20'++ and closing our all channels. I dropped in on some of the biggest waves of the season and kicked out at the first sign of a close out. All went well until I was washed over the big rock at the mouth of the channel.I was relatively unscathed other than some painful ribs. I hope this doesn't keep me pot of the game.
