We measure from the back of the wave here. So, as you can imagine, the front of the wave could have all sorts of different shapes. A 4 foot wave at Chuns Reef would be crumbly and good to learn on. A 4 footer at Ke Iki's will grind your face into the sand. Still 4 foot from the back. It's weird I know. It's useful to know when you live here cause that's how everyone calls the surf. That's the only real difference. We still look at period and direction and all that too.

Thanks! One of my favorites for sure. Love how the evening light naturally lit it up. Almost looks like I had a flash.
