Mele Kalikimaka!  Schlogged around in beautiful Hawaii, with an occassional planing thrown in for good measure. Headed right out into the wave area...went through a few white waters and then tried to chicken jibe in front of what must have been a 3 foot wave!! :)  Lost my kit, but swam hard right to it...then I was worked in those massive ankle biters for a good 20 minutes. The problem was that there was not enough wind to water start. Lost my pony tail holders to the waves. Spent the rest of the time slowly making my way upwind to our launch spot, but enjoying it. I stayed on the inside though.

It was amazing watching the tow-in surfers this morning at Jaws. They are insane!!!!
