It’s been a big two days here at the Rip Curl House on the North Shore of Oahu! Rosy Hodge, Brisa Hennessy, Alyssa Spencer, Leah Thompson, Leilani McGonagle, Melania Suarez, Molly Picklum, Ewe Wong and Erin Brooks have taken on the challenge of surfing every day, chasing the best conditions and trying to find gold on the sandy stretch they call the Seven Mile Miracle. Lucky for them, swell is on the horizon and has already begun to fill in.
The Rip Curl Women woke up this morning to see Off The Wall breaking at a solid six feet, and only two other surfers in the lineup. Without thinking twice, the team was out there, manoeuvring incoming swell and shifting sand over the infamous reef. The sun was shining, the women were catching waves and only a few lucky ladies copped beatings – one of whom happened to be Hawaiian local Ewe Wong, who turned 15 today. No better way to celebrate than a good old five-wave hold down.
Over the next week the forecast for swell holds strong, with solid waves on tap each day… so stay tuned as the Rip Curl Women take on the North Shore.
