Jon, That is super radical! It also sounds painful!! Tell me more about it.

North shores – The mid-winter swell activity will continue, rising Friday, gradually lowering through the weekend…with yet another very large northwest swell arriving late Sunday into early next week – with a very large northwest swell slated to arrive late next Tuesday into Wednesday.

Olaf said:"The ART OF ART! I watched this entire session, ART is the KUAU MASTER!"

Frank Sabb said "Had you been there to see the show, it would have been clear to you that Art was in complete control of the situation. He made it look like a walk in the park. He went out and came back in to the inside about ten times, making it out each time without taking a single hit. His hair was dry."

North shores – The mid-winter swell activity will continue, with the active surf conditions into early next week. The largest surf this week will occur Thursday into Friday, then gradually lowering through the weekend. A new northwest swell will arrive right after the weekend. The trades will strengthen Thursday, making for choppy and wind blown conditions through the rest of this week…then lighter from the southeast early next week in time for that next swell.

The largest surf along the north shores will reach near 9-12 feet {Hawaiian}18-25 feet on the face Thursday

Gerry Lopez
Legendary Hawaiian Waterman Gerry Lopez... Not many people can say they've single-handedly changed the course of a sport. Fewer still have done so with all the casualness of a cat licking its haunches. Gerry Lopez not only made Pipeline the world's most important wave, he made the tube the ultimate prize in surfing. Lopez was born in Honolulu, the son of a newsman for the city's Bulletin and Advertiser. When Lopez got serious about surfing in high school, his hero was Paul Strauch -- his style and grace would be Lopez's reference point. At Ala Moana in the mid-'60s, Lopez witnessed his first tuberides, and the wave became his training ground. Along with Reno Abellira, he was a protege of the much-in-demand Dick Brewer. He pursued a degree in architecture from the University of Hawaii from 1967-'69, then dropped out and became the epitome of the new age surfer.

The shortboard revolution/hippie generation needed an archetype, and it was Lopez. He discovered yoga, meditation and psychedelia around the time he began shaping under the tutelage of Surfline Honolulu's Chris Green. Jock Sutherland, who had been the king at Pipeline, left to serve in the military, and Lopez eased onto the throne. The barrel at Pipe had been surveyed, but not fully explored. During the epic winter of 1969-'70, Lopez set the standard for riding the tube at the world's most dangerous break. Suddenly, nothing else mattered in surfing. The barrel was now hallowed ground, and the barrel at Pipe was Shangri La.

In 1971, Lopez established Lightning Bolt surfboards with Jack Shipley. The trademark, fueled by the Lopez aura, came to represent Hawaiian surfing. Virtually every top pro rode the boards on the North Shore during the '70s. When the company devolved into a power struggle, Lopez sold his portion and made a clean exit to a 20-acre ranch he bought on Maui.

By the mid-'70s, the North Shore's crowds drove Lopez to seek asylum. After relocating to Maui in 1973, began exploring Indonesia in search of empty perfection. He was one of the first at Uluwatu and G-Land, where he spent months gearing up for winter at Pipe

This is some kine stuff. Hang out with the Maui Jaws Paddle in crew as they talk story about their new passion, Paddling into Jaws. There is some good video of this crew charging the wave that many thought to be unpaddleable. These guys are my neighbors here on the north shore.
Click the link below for the video a of these young chargers.
www.dakine.com/surf/video/actionvideo/118

DAKINE Paddles Peahi <br />"Paddling Peahi" is about the newly explored realm of paddling Jaws (Peahi), without the assistance of a jetski. Ian Walsh, Albee Layer, Matt Meola, a friends have been trying to figure out the best way approach what was once thought to be impossible. Factoring in swell direction, tides, wind, crowds, and most importantly, equipment. These young chargers have been defying all odds and making history at the same time.

A group of climber/surfers over on another web site have been exploring and sharing their thoughts,feelings and experiences of how climbing and surfing compliment each other.It's very difficult to compare the two but there have been some interesting insight in the posts.
Here's one of my posts about a day back in 1980 on the North shore of Oahu.
