Surfers on the island of Oahu just scored the biggest summer swell they’ve had in a long time. While a big swell on Oahu may be nothing new, it is odd to score one at this time of year. The tap that delivers the north swells that light up the seven-mile miracle is turned off tight during summer, and the Island’s surfers must subsist on South Swells, which roll into the other side of Oahu. Typically, these are nothing to write home about but this last one, the same swell that delivered the recent monster waves to Teahupo'o, was pretty nice.

Here Mason Ho makes a dash to town with his Pops, to score a session at Ala Moana Bowls, a wave seemingly tailor-made for Mason’s spontaneity.
