Right you are. The recent videos of the boats exiting and entering the Ali Moana harbor are cool. I'm sure they get swell often enough for this to be a fairly routine event. Now, it's time to move on.. seen it, carry on!I'd say the guys on the boat are having a blast, and the guy holding the camera should go home and eat his porridge. He kept saying that he was shitting his pants, and they'll be bought beers at the club for a least a month! That's what life if made for!
Well said, what is the big deal, when it is blowing hard, the waves are much bigger than that. They had no problem getting out, just a foul mouthed loon with a cameraBrilliant, if that wat it takes to go out sailing, then GO!!! I would do it, they do it so what's the big deal. Can't swim, no PFD? Stay the fuck on sore then, it's blowing 35 knots outside gusting to 45 where I am with a nasty chop to go with it. And it will be like that all week for me here. I much rather have breaking surf and mild winds thank you very much.Now HTFU and go sailing!!!
I wonder if the waves come in sets and then you have a little window to get in and out or are they just constant?Classic case of what my friend, Great Red Shark calls,"Gotta Get there Itis." That's what did John F. Kennedy Jr. in, if I remember correctly. Gotta get to that wedding, even if its foggy and I'm not instrument rated. That blue boat goes in and out all the time as it serves as a seemingly popular diving flatform. You'd think they'd have seen the breakers in the channel on the way out. You can spot them from about the fuel dock or so, way before you reach the area where it closes out. But, gotta get there. Famous last words....
Just to the left of where th blue boat was crossing the bar, where the surfers are (only a few meters away) is the remants of the keel of some boat that piled up on the reef. A great reminder that gives me chills every time I see it. And, by the way, we ALWAYS go in and out with our main up.
