Way, way east there was excellent swell in the water, a stiff offshore all day, and as the tide start down late morning, the outer bar was firing 6+ peaks.  5-10 people in the water, as much as you wanted, all afternoon, under sunny skies...maybe not epic, but very, very good!

Eff the webcast, what about holding the finals on a weekend, when conditions permit-- like now!?  I mean, great for the folks that can take a day off and be there, or knock off at work and watch the cast, or tune in from the folk's couch on yet another workless day, but for the people that have to actually be productive at work on a post-Labor Day Friday, the scheduling of the cont seems to suck hind tit, and a webcast would only make the feelings of brown trout why can't I be there and brown trout I wish I had time to watch this even more extreme. 

So...the contest is over?  Was thinking that tomorrow would be a surf some, gawk some day; oh well, I guess I won't feel guilty for not walking down the beach for a peek.

Uh, I think that it is "toeing" the line, like in putting your toes on a line, like stepping up to the party line, at least in its original usage.  It's funny how the sense of the phrase has morphed into "towing" and the imagery of leading the way and pulling behind.  Dave towing Laird.  Towing is righteous, but the original connotes of "toeing" (subjugation, compromise, opportunism) in the phrase are lost in the homophonic morf current.

Thanks, pics and dims would be great!

Thanks for the responses.  Here's the thing, the girl actually bought herself a Stewart this summer at a board swap in Hanalei that she was really stoked about-blue flames graphics, for Christ's sake.  It got lifted before we came back (thank god, it was going to cost me more getting it home than she paid for it!). Looseness, I believe that the board would be a good fit for her, but if it looks all shitty, it's gonna be a problem (did I mention that she is 15?). I'm not far from LB if a look is better than a pic.  I'd say my price range in this venture is 300 or less.

Something of a transition board for my teen daughter who has grown tired of the longboard.  The younger is tearing it up on her pink Frocket ( thanks Onefin!) and the older is now wanting more options in her ride too.  Let me know whatcha gots.

Poipu has some nice summer breaks, waohai fronts the Marriott, shipwrecks and PKs not far, in either direction.  But in January you would want to be on the north shore of Kauai, near Hanalei; probably too far to want to drive to on a regular basis (50 min.+) from the Marriott.

Girl loves the pink Frocket! Thanks Onefin, a sweet board at a great price!  Uh... She wants to Sharpie your April 4 (11:50am) comment on the deck for good measure...that wouldn't be a prob, right?  Cheers!

I'm looking for a short board for my daughter (11yrs).  She's been riding a longboard for a couple of years and wants to progress to a short.  Round nose, wide and floaty 5'6"-5'8" is what I'm thinking.
