Hawaii was awesome, now back to the shaping bay for me. I had a great trip and scored tonnes of swell, but in mostly stormy conditions. The pic above is at Waimea Bay on the 26.01.14 and was definitely one to remember. So it was great to get a bigger wave fix again, and now bring on Autumn at home. Photo – thanx Christian.
