UPDATE Nov 21
Ali'i Beach is 1-2 ft this morning. Contest organizers have decided to call a lay day and wait for a new swell that is predicted to hit the North Shore late Saturday. Be sure to check back over the weekend for event status. Most likely Sunday and Monday will see the brunt of the new swell, which should provide ample surf for the last 2 days of competition. Aloha

Swell is predicted to hit the North Shore tonight and bring us waves by tomorrow morning. Check back tomorrow morning at 8am for event status.

UPDATE Nov 23
Mello had an amazing win going from 4th to 1st in the dying minutes and getting arguably the barrel of the day. Adam won his heat with a 9.80 and 1.00. He surfs next in Ht 8 round of 32. Woody was eliminated in a slow heat that was only decided in the last minute. He finishes in 33rd and gets a small boost up the ratings.


UPDATE Nov 24
Bad luck for Mello today after leading for the entire heat he couldn't find a back up for his 8.07 and slipped into 3rd. Good luck at Sunset fellahs.
