HIGH SURF ADVISORY CONTINUES FOR SOUTH FACING SHORES
It's been cracking all week, with no end in sight.
I'm burnt and sore but must get more...
Beachgoers should exercise caution and boaters should be away of surfers using harbor channels to get to and from surf spots, forecasters said.
A series of swells has been keeping waves above advisory levels since Thursday afternoon delighting experienced town surfers on Oahu.
However, lifeguards have been busy with rescues and warning inexperienced swimmers.
From Friday through Sunday, lifeguards rescued or assisted 540 swimmers from south and east shore beaches.
Five men were nearly swept into the ocean near the Halona Blowhole Saturday afternoon, while lifeguards and a Good Samaritan in the water helped another group of people who were swept into the ocean by a wave at China Walls in Portlock.

I figured this was just a cute title to a thread about how HAARP is being used as a directed energy weapon to attack nonconformist Hawaiians with big ocean waves or something.

I started surfing again last year
I didn't know what was more fun when it came to getting whiped out or actually surfing.
I'm just getting past shore breakers haha can't wait to test the double overheads!

Damn this thread while I'm sitting here at work!! Spent the whole weekend at the beach between kayaking(no swell) and boating. But I'm gonna be teaching my sons to surf this summer. They are looking forward to it. I've put them on my boards before, but not by themselves.

The ocean has been flexing its muscles for the past couple of days.
Largest swell in decades hits Hawaiian shores, 40-50 foot waves roll in
There's never a shortage of idiots, who seem to want to die.
(I love how the dumbass in the background is grinning while some kid is potentially about to get swept to sea...)

Somebody put a toddler in that surf? DAFUQ!?!??
I'm guessing they aren't local? Most people who live within 100 miles of a coastline know better than to disrespect the sea.

People are fucking idiots.
The lifeguards constantly have to tell people to get the **** away from the water.
The moment they turn to tell someone else, the people go right back.
"This looks like a great place to sit..."
"OMG, mai ipad!!1!"
"Ok granny, we better hurry..."
"Surely that doesn't apply to me..."

"The thing is, helicopters are different from airplanes. An airplane by its nature wants to fly, and if it is not interfered with too strongly by unusual events or a deliberately incompetent pilot, it will fly. A helicopter does not want to fly. It is maintained in the air by a variety of forces and controls working in opposition to each other, and if there is any disturbance in this delicate balance, the helicopter stops flying, immediately and disastrously. There is no such thing as a gliding helicopter.
This is why being a helicopter pilot is so different from being an airplane pilot, and why, in generality, airplane pilots are open, clear-eyed buoyant extroverts and helicopter pilots are brooders, introspective anticipators of trouble. They know if something bad has not happened it is about to."
