As hookipa was slightly beyond my ability I decided to go check the west side and a some good south swell forecasts I had seen in the morning, calling 2-3, when it is normally 1-2.
First stop on the west side is my favourite McDonald in the world. Why it’s my favourite? Because .. it’s got the best flags! McD+US+Hawaii.
After refueling, I continued towards one of the most beautiful spots on the island, and not just for the conditions: Honolua Bay
On the way back, trying to surf the south swell, I stopped at another favourite of mine: Laniupoko
This is a nice park offering grass, palm shade, a nice beach, an enclosed little beach for kids and a decent south swell exposure.
After some rest and having checked the minimal surf I headed back home. Drove through Ho’okipa to find it fully packed by the after work brigade.
