Surfs Monster Wave in Portugal

You can see the Waverunner which towed him out at top. He was about 10 stories up and could have easily fallen that far to the rocks.

When I was there it was calm.

I am trying to get back to the North Shore of Oahu in Feb if I can get away from Florida this winter. Those are da kine waves for me. Any of the Hawaiian islands have primo beaches in the best tropics I've found.



North shore waves in winter can come up over the highway and smash the asphalt to gravel, stripping all of the vegetation from the trees leaving them like matchsticks.


Kalalau Valley on Kauai, most fertile place on earth. A 3 day 11 mile hike along 1000 foot sheer cliffs is only access other than a 4000-ft overlook from above on the drive to the Waimea Canyon, a tropical Grand Canyon. The mountain in the center of Kauai, Mt Waielele is the wettest spot on earth, it never stops raining hence the vegetation is too rotten to hike or keep any kind of foothold so the peak is inaccessible, always shrouded in clouds.

Maui has the Road to Hana which is the most tropical drive on earth, takes an entire day due to road winding into and out of coves, caves and under waterfalls.




There are more than 40 features on five of the islands that are the most spectacular places on earth, with nothing that can compare anywhere I've been and I've been everywhere.
