Hawaii: Surfing Pressure Cooker, Surfing Paradise | Aritz Aranburu, Ep. 6 What better place to take your readers in the depths of winter than warm, sunny Hawaii? Aritz goes competition surfing, and then just has a freaking good time. Enjoy! As the competition season draws to a close Aritz finds himself in Hawaii with his place on the World Championship Tour still not completely secure. Every heat matters now... even when the waves don't show up. The Pacific goes flat but a journeyman like Aritz knows how to get'er done, swell or no -- something he proves by methodically dismantling his fellow competitors at the Reef Hawaiian Pro in Haleiwa. When the waves definitively go kaput Aritz gets a week of unscheduled vacation and takes advantage by diving, swimming in waterfalls, body surfing, and even riding a Wavestorm at different spots around Oahu. Tune in next week to see if Aritz can finally re-qualify for the WCT tour.
