Waimea-Big Waves
 
Anyone go to the Eddie Aikau Memorial?
Pretty funny that a Montanan is following some Hawaii sports, but I've been watching a LOT of surfing videos lately.
Here's the website. Pretty awesome videos.

I wish I could go! Would've brought my bicycle with me just to get around the traffic mess. Too bad the big waves came on a weekday :(

And nothing wrong with being a Montanan watching surf videos. I bet it must be dreary up there on the mainland haha

I'm with you, Doug. Although I did grow up surfing on the east coast ... so that's the reason I still follow surfing closely. Bad part is that I get homesick - or should I say "oceansick"?

Surfing is a disease you never overcome. One day I hope to get back to the coast so I can get back on a board. Until then, I'll surf down a mountain.

I went a few times growing up, but as the waves had to be a certain height to hold the event, it wasn't on every year, sometimes years apart. Great waves this year, but I am far from Home[bigcry]


Oh, I must respectfully disagree, a disease is bad for You, surfing is the best thing You can do to Yourself.[hihi]

Ha, yeah that's true. Damn, being landlocked can really suck.

jmiller_1974 12-16-2009 04:30 PM

Yeah, it sure can, but I was there last February, and I just know I can't afford to live There, at least not yet. I will make it back. I feel that I need to go camping on the beach again. There is no better feeling,IMO, that compares to the sound of waves crashing on the beach, with the 70-something degree salt air in Your nose...

I'm sure being landlocked is better than being ocean-locked. Can't drive the Focus anywhere but here lol.

and it sucks always seeing the free shipping disclaimers about only the 48 continental states

jmiller_1974 12-18-2009 10:23 PM

Well, Alaska and Hawai'i are the "Freak States", right? Funny, I still notice that when I see a commercial. It's like My eye is permanently trained to see the *Excludes Alaska and Hawai'i in the mice type...
