Back to HI - another 7M gale this time with some snow!

Great day for what may be the last date(s) on the water before its full on winter. Back to HI! Another cold one in the 40's but trying to new $40 GoPro knockoff with some HD video. Dark sky and winds WSW 20-35 to start the session and its actually perfect on the 7m and the Duke. Great swell building and by 5pm its a full gale with 40+ winds and more full West winds. Now its snowing and sleeting too. In for a break and its so windy my Carbon Houting gets picked up off the brass and thrown into the road! Cosmetic damage and so sanding but stupid I will always keep that board near the car when not riding... Winds drop from nuclear and snow ends so back out for another and not to be outdone by last week the horizon opens for hues of blue/red/yellow and the sun doing and color dance as it disappears and darkness falls. In just before 6 and pitch dark 10 minutes later. Great afternoon and another worthy drive home. Video highlights some trench spraying.
