Stay late, leave happy. For the North Shore of Oahu, it’s only going to get better the longer you stay. The lineups clear out a bit (don’t be fooled, it’s still plenty crowded), waves are in abundance, and the girls have less of a pool to choose from. Your average Joe might not benefit profusely from this situation, and the danger factor is still high, but if you’re somebody like, say, Jeremy Flores, then it’s probably in your benefit to extend your trip and dig in. Keep ’em peeled for a drainer of a cameo by Mike Ho, 57 years old and still making the young guys look like chumps.
