After meeting with some clients in Haiku today, I took a quick side trip through the old pineapple fields to check out the action at Jaws. There was a high surf warning today. That means the weather service was predicting wave faces in excess of 25 feet at selected locations along the North and West facing shorelines of the Hawaiian Islands. These are the type of conditions necessary to make the waves at Jaws break. There were a few windsurfers and tow surfers in the water testing their mettle in the wind blown waves. By Jaws standards, today’s waves were relatively small. Granted those small waves are pretty scary for mere mortals.

Small days still create big whitewater!

I stuck around to watch a few sets roll through the lineup. Even on small day, this place is quite the spectacle of nature.
