Ala Moana Bowls

Bowls Bump

GALLERY: http://oahusurfshots.smugmug.com/Other/Ala-Moana-Bowls-06-10-2011/174980...

The swell bumped up a notch yesterday (Friday). I shot from 4:30 to 7:00pm. The waves were super fun. Solid 3 foot sets with the occasional 4 footer. I was gonna shoot somewhere this morning, got up early and shot over the Pali, but the swell looked down from yesterday. It was slow with a bit of morning sickness. I might check it out a little later.

I got some nice video yesterday toward the end of the session. I'll probably have it edited together in a day or two.

I wanted to shoot Bowls on Monday afternoon but I missed it due to some last minute Craigslist car shopping. Buying a car sucks. I got over there yesterday (Tuesday) and it was down from Monday with no sign of Pat's predicted reinforcement. I figured there'd still be a few good ones and swam out. Ended up being fun. A little slow in the beginning but the 3 foot sets started pumping through toward the end.

Here's a few video clips I took at Bowls yesterday.

Quick Bowls Vid

The other day when I was taking photos at Bowls it got all dark and cloudy so I shot a few video clips. Just did a quick throw together with some tunes. The footage is from May 14th and 24th. Most of the footage is a little dark.

Bowls was a Cracking

Another bowls session yesterday. 4:30 to 6:30pm. It was a little bigger, a little more consistent and less crowded than the day before. Killer. 3 to 4 feet on the sets with some pretty tunnels rolling through. Pre-session I left my car for 10 minutes in the pay parking section to go grab a few bucks for the parking meter and when I came back to pay da buggah was gone.

Buttery Bowls

Swam out at Bowls yesterday and took pictures between 4:30 and 6:30pm. It was pretty sick. Solid 3 feet on the sets with a little bit more on the biggest ones. Winds were stiff offshore and opening them up. There was the odd set hitting the big bowl. A few of the groms were making the dash over there on the bigger sets and sneaking into a few shacks.

A Few Fun Ones at Bowls

It's been ages since I got camera in the water. It's either been rainy and cloudy or the wind's been onshore. The trade winds and sun finally returned so I swam out for a quick shoot at Bowls. The waves weren't epic, but there were some fun shoulder high ones rolling through.

Looks like a better swell slated for Tuesday / Wednesday and then an even bigger one in a week.

Fun Forerunners at Bowls - w/ Gallery

I swam out and took photos at Bowls between 4:30pm and 6:30pm. The new swell was kicking in nicely with sets pushing a couple feet over head and even a few bigger ones. Tide was super high but it still had killer shape - a few tubes and lots of SMASHable sections. Town should be firing on all cylinders tomorrow. But then again it's town, so don't call in sick till you've checked it in the morning. Click on the title to see a handful of good shots.

Yesterday's Bowls Gallery

GALLERY: http://oahusurfshots.smugmug.com/Other/Ala-Moana-Bowls-04-05-2011/164995...

Here's the bowls gallery from yesterday afternoon.

I took pictures 4 out of the last 5 days and haven't been around the house much. When my two year old daughter woke up from her nap yesterday she asked "Where's my Dada?... I want him to get me some waves." I might have to sit it out today and honor the keiki's request. Unless of course it's looking really good then maybe I can squeeze a quick photo sesh in.

Another Bowls Bash + Gallery

I hit Bowls again yesterday afternoon. Waves were mostly around chest to shoulder high and light offshore. There were plenty of smackable sections being dished up.
