blacks was mean back in day - the right out at blacks is fucked up now it closes out hard. back in the day we were getting fucken perfect bowly 100 metre rides on da rights those were da days

- whoever posted this wave is a dumb fuck...an east swell wont get into blacks at all..and south-west wind is onshore as..It works best in a south-west swell..cool how the swell comes up the east coast of the islands and mahia sticks out enough to get it...a blessing for sure
