High surf and rain on the North Shore today so headed Poipu way. First stop Wailua Falls to check out the flow and an expedition on a side trail through abandoned cane fields for a photo op of misty Waialeale. Now that cane fields are history, the old haul roads look wide open for mountain biking. With permission, of course.
Today 40 foot waves and 60 mph winds were predicted coming from the northwest. Haena Beach Park surf was wild and wicked, Ke'e the same with plenty of onlookers. Surfers caught a few good ones at Lumahai, but first they had to brave the storm surge at the put-in.
