Every surfer, should come and visit the surfing Mecca. With waves for all abilities from first timer to kamikaze it is all here on an 8 mile stretch known as the country. The opposite of this is known as town or 'wacky wacky' which is also a fun place to surf a 12 ft barge with your family on it.
If you plan on visiting the aloha state then make sure you sort out your place to stay way in advance as in the northern hemi winter months places are few and far between. In fact I was told of a young surfer paying 300 dollars a month to sleep under a house up near sunset beach!!
Talking of Sunset Beach, today and over the next few days it is hosting the Stand Up World Tour and has amazing conditions on tap, pic below was taken this morning by myself when I went to catch up with friends whom are competing in the event.
After watching some of the heats and the swell grow I opted for a fun session at pinballs with only a handful of other surfers in the water on massive surfboards it was a fun session and the vibe in the water was so mellow with everyone cheering each others waves.
The swell is going to be much bigger over next few days so will post more pictures and info of what's happening on the north shore.
Happy surfing Simon @ GSD
