Our family lived in Hawaii for nearly 3 years and loved the warm, clear waves. We played, boarded and surfed in them whenever possible. One of my favorite beaches was Makapuu as it was one of the only ones with sand under it instead of coral. It had a steep sand beach which made the wave stand up and were amazing for body surfing or bogey-boarding. Only one problem: when you didn't catch the wave just right, it would throw you in front of the wave on to bare sand- then crash on top of you! You would get mercilessly pounded, tumbled, and then it would leave you in a heap far up the the beach. Makapuu reminds me of Christmas: I love it, but when December hits, I feel like I am tumbled until after January 1st when I come up for air and find myself lying in a heap. I look forward to it coming again next year, but now I am looking around saying, "Man, that was some wave!"
