Day one was worth a watch or at least a wait for the highlight reel, which can be viewed below. We won’t bore you with the post-El Niño hangover biz. But, the waves are looking worthwhile today, and if you got time to kill, which you do, go ahead and watch the low-budget webcast brought to us by Da Hui. There’s some solid threading going on out there, just keep your eyes glued to the screen because there are no replays, just raw footage. It’s like you are there on the beach, but instead on a couch in slippers and sweats, or chained to your desk waiting for the three-day Martin Luther King weekend in the state.
