August 21, 2007

Touched down right on time after a quiet and uneventful flight. The usual inconveniences with baggage claim and the rental car but nothing out of the ordinary. My rental board was delivered right on time, great service. My board locker was ready; the condo is delivering great service…had our room ready two hours early and we checked in.

Pretty much unpacked and checked the surf. At first it looked flat so I diddled around for about a half-hour and looked again. Three guys out and some lines showing. Had to get wet. Paddled out to Paradise and got five nice rides in an hour. Getting reacquainted with the offshores and a new longboard. Surf is in the two to three foot range with right and lefts. Took about a half hour to get the line-up and the take-off. Nose down, take off late and let the wind do the rest.

About 4PM the place started to fill up with after-work locals. It got too crowded for conditions and I paddled in (long paddle), satisfied and stoked to be surfing in Hawaii on a rental board that worked well and in warm water that felt good. Looking forward to tomorrow.

No in-room isp. Will have to make other arrangements.
