So, we were not able to make it to the Caribbean this year. So we decided to go to Oahu, South Shore.
We found a nice to rent in Diamond Head. The surf out front looks good. If you thought your spot was crowded, try surfing "Town" on a south swell, holy crap!
My friend, Bob, came by with some boards for me to use. This will actaully be the firs time out since my great run of surf back in January. For those that keep up, you will remember that I hurt my shoulder. I have been doing physical therapy for the last 5 weeks, but the pain is still there. I think I did something bad.
I really dont anticipate surfing much, since most of the spots require a 200-300 yard paddle. I dont think mu=y shoulder will make it, but, I will keep you posted.
Bob and I plan on surfing Wailupes and Boneyards in the next few days, so stay tuned.
On the good side, it is 82 air, high 70's to low 80's water.
I'll post pictures soon.

So, KK and I headed out of the LBC up to Weho. All I can say was I was kind of let down. Jon Swift was great. The opening act Brett Dennen, was good, but 5 mellow acoustic songs, after being inside for an hour was too much. Then Rob finally comes out, has a little raffle and then says the band will set up and they will be out, another 45 minutes and they finally get on stage. The movie was average. I have never been a fan of Taylor Steele and have never unsderstood what all the “hype “ is about, I much prefer a Thomas Campbell, Jack Johnson, Malloy Brothers or Andrew Kidman movie to most of what is produced these days. I think they could have a done a better job at the show, They could have had a surf flick playing from the minute you got inside, a good ½ hour of wipeouts would have been great. All in all, I was happy to get out, I enjoyed the beers and the In-n-Out at midnight on the way home.
