    Aloha surfers and beachgo- ers,
Mid-November is still seeing some fun south swells that reached just overhead — a rarity for this late in the season. In fact, the re- cent south in town was bigger than country at the time — another rarity. Of course, nature will take its course and even out these rarities with big northwest swells and tiny south swells. But it’s fun to witness Moth- er Nature playing tricks.

Kai is one of our sport’s most ar- ticulate athletes and kicked off this big news break with “And then there were four! I can’t believe I’m gonna be a dad to TWINS!” via Instagram. He added “...about to drop into the greatest ride of my life.”
