Surfing

Ian ‘Akahi Masterson and John Clark presented a lecture on the history of surfing on June 13 at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. 

The only cause for concern this weekend is a cold front that is a couple hundred miles northwest of the islands. It is expected to reach the islands early Friday morning, bringing scattered showers and wind gusts reaching 20 mph.

The rest of the weekend is going to be clear and breezy due to a high pressure system towards the west, which will bring in high wind speeds and wave heights as high as 10 feet on the northeastern portion of the island. There might also be a few isolated showers Sunday morning, so if you are planning on surfing on Sunday, make sure it’s in the afternoon.
