Haiku Poem – 夏の波

screaming in delight
riding in the ocean’s hand

サーフィン に のれば えんえん べっせかい

The summer is coming to Hawaii and when that happens the south side of the island starts to have summer swells and that means that there is some very nice surfing available very close and also the perfect size waves for people like me who are new to the sport and not very good! There are surfing spots close to Ala Moana Park where the amateur surfing championships are held in the summer. Sometimes the swell can be so high that the submarines have to cancel for the day along with the diving and snorkeling boats. Even though I have lived in Hawaii for many years it is a sport that I have recently started and I am very confident in saying I am the worst surfer in the world!
