Big Waves on the North Shore

Talk about a nice coincidence.

Just in time for the annual Vans Triple Crown of Surfing, the big waves are coming into the famed North Shore of Oahu.

The first “Crown” begins with the Reef Hawaiian Pro, held in Haleiwa at Alii Beach Park, and runs from November 12-23, waves permitting.

Reports indicate waves at 12-15 feet, while forecasts are indicating waves running as high as 15-20 feet.

Conditions are good, and the crowds are large.

The nice thing about this annual spectacle – the admission is FREE.

During these conditions, it is highly advised that swimmers, waders, and amateur surfers stay out of the waves, as conditions can be very dangerous. Respect the waves from a comfortable vantage point on the warm sand.
