Molokai Hoe Bump

Friday, May 04, 2007 / Posted by Rambo /

You need to experience this once in a lifetime Oc6 bump. To have this happen near the end of the race when you're leading the Masters Division must have pumped heaps of adrenaline through tired bodies after 40.8 miles of challenging ocean conditions.

The Mooloolaba Masters went on to win in 5:34.

Awesome, who were the guys in the boat? Suspect Kenny was the steerer, eh?

Comment by Rambo on May 04, 2007

Noel & Bruce Kolka,Danny Sheard,Grabbie,Adrian Blanford,Dave,Greg Anderson,Cammbo & Kenny.

They say the run went for about 200 metres and it still comes up at the bar when the grog flows. That was Jason Sommerville - Kimlin (coach) doing all the screaming from the support boat.

Great Wave!

You gotta love that at the end of the race!

As for Sue get her another video camera and have her take some more footage!

Wish we'd had a bump like that to catch at the end of the girls' race last year.....a little help at the end of that race certainly goes a long way!!

Good onya boys!

They're in what I call our "Diamond Head Slot." Nice 5'bump passing the DH light house and the "Rock Wall" (about half way thru the video) and a half mile off the reef.

It's also a thrill to get it on the OC1's. Recently Gray Taylor of Hamilton NZ on a Vantage with a Garmin GPS caught it and got an honest max of 16mph on it. I was out farther on his left and about 100m + ahead of him and he got me and passed me - a realfreebie.

Keoki, thanks for the update on naming the location, it's now no longer a secret hahaaa.

I haven't surfed it myself yet but i have been close.

Cheers Rambo

Hi Rambo,

great surfing run;

this is also the spot where you see the OC1s suddenly do a 90 degree left turn to get out of of the break during the famous 'Hawaii Kai' runs.

Without much warning a bigger set may come in on average days; this makes it a little riskier to go around Diamand Head on the 'inside'.
After the bigger set things get back to 'normal' again. You just have to look out for it and be prepared to sprint out.

Hi Rambo,

Here is a new approach to cross training.
Plus, there is a real incentive to train more!
