Wave Rave: Get ready for golf ball drop
A week of windy waves out there again which is normal this time of year with plenty of strong northerly winds and southerly swells coming in.
There have been a couple of mornings where we see the off-shore winds before the northerly comes back in and smash the surf.
Hawaii has already started with the last few surfing comps there to end the season.
Mason Ho the son of the great Hawaiian surfer Michael Ho, won the HIC Pro at Sunset with the next event being the Hawaiian Pro at Alii Beach Oahu, then we have the Vans World Cup again at Sunset Beach before the final event of the year being at North Shores' Pipeline.
Locally, BBB had their club round last weekend for the Juniors which had small but clean waves at the wreck.
