Haiku Poem – 夏の波

screaming in delight
riding in the ocean’s hand
private limousine

サーフィンに乗れば延々別世界
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!

 もうすぐハワイに夏がやって来ます。オアフ島の南の海には、緩やかで長い、うねるような波がやってきます。波に幅があって、丸く巻き込む感じです。夏のこのうねりのおかげで、私達は、ノースショアに行かなくても、近場でサーフインが出来ます。また、私のような初心者でも楽しむことが出来ます。夏には、アラモアナ公園の近くで、素人の為のサーフィン大会が行われます。時々、夏の波は、凄く高くなります。そんな日には、一日中、観光用潜水艦とダイビングとスノーケリングのツアーをキャンセルしなくてはいけません。私はハワイに何年も住んでいるのに、やっと最近になってサーフィンを始めました。私は世界一、下手くそなサーファーです。
