Aftermath

The 30-foot waves and 90-knot gusts have faded, and all is slowly returning back to normal on Oahu, Hawaii. Hell, we might even get a trade wind tomorrow. The island is in clean-up mode as they repair from one of the most ferocious storms I’ve witnessed. Some beaches will need time for the sand to return, especially near Pipe, where houses are at serious risk. Waves were crossing the road hitting cars near Log Cabins yesterday! Hectic.

There’s still 8 footers rolling around into cracks of this island that are generally flat. The water clarity is horrendous, but we’re hoping it will pass – fast. It’s been a strange few days around here…lots of places had no¬†electricity (including us), Foodland at Waimea lost $50,000 worth of cold stock due to power outages!

On our @Aquabumps Instagram, we’ll be announcing a competition (soon) for a lucky couple to score matching Google Pixel 3 phones for Valentine’s Day. Yes, win brilliant phones. Follow¬†us to find out more.

  1. That first one is Cockroach Bay surely! I didn’t know it had real name. Back in the early sixties my friends and I used to go there and have bonfires at night with the girls. A small track to go down to the beach. Nice secluded spot but I always knew it as Cockroach Bay. There is a little cave there where the water rushes in at the right of your photo? It is in that area around Sandy Beach and Blow Hole…if I recall correctly. I do like Oahu. Lived there in my teens even went to school there for year 11. I had so much good surf and fun on the south shore.
