Unexpected Wind

The forecast has been all over the place changing every half an hour so no-one thought there would be any wind today. We went to Ho'okipa anyway to make sure and unfortunately there wasn't enough. We also decided against surfing there because it was so crowded and headed to a thousand peaks for a surf instead.It was so much fun-about head high and we had a great surf. By 3pm we were done and were horrified to have messages from friends saying that the wind had picked up back on the north shore. Damn it! We raced back and I was rigged up at Ho'okipa (4.7) by 4 pm. The conditions looked really ropey-super off shore, gusty and dying wind but I decided to try it anyway just for the sake of getting wet. It certainly didn't rank high in my book of sessions but it's always awesome just to get on the water. Camilla still wasn't feeling 100% so she took some pics. Thanks Camilla!
