Watch: Himalayas // 16.01.21
All season, Hawaii and California have been playing Hot Potato with the XXL swells, and this weekend the spud landed squarely in the islands (again).
Saturday saw huge surf at Peahi, where the trade-wind played havoc from mid-morning onwards, and on Oahu, which escaped strong trades so the exposed outer reefs sparkled under 20-30 feet of NW swell.
This clip was filmed at Himalayas, though includes a few waves from across the channel at Outside Laniakea. It's raw, a bit shaky, but gives a good indication of quality and includes a near-make - see 3:20 - on a backside 25ft paddle in barrel.
Below are a few more clips from the day, first Kawai Berry's paddle in barrel, and below that a ski getting rocket-launched off a closeout set.
