The winter surf season on the northern shores of Hawaii’s islands continues to be in the great to greater category with the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing, the Eddie Aikau Big Wave Invitational, and more exceptional free surf competitions having some of the best waves in years.
Well, it isn’t planning to stop anytime soon. 25 – 30 foot faces are expected on the North Shores of the Hawaiian islands with the western shores seeing as high as 20 foot faces. These wave heights are right on the edge of closing out places like the Banzai Pipeline and making Waimea Bay on Oahu and Jaws on Maui having some great turnouts.
Hopefully you’ll be able to make it, but if you aren’t, you can enjoy these videos from previous large north swells that came late in 2009. Videos of Jaws on Maui and video from the epic day at Waimea Bay for the Eddie Aikau.
