  View Xmas Days Jaws Photo Gallery.

What a great Chrismas Day! Jaws was breaking for at least the fourth time this month and I was there again for the fourth time. It was another  Hugewave  day, and the crowds were out in huge numbers on the cliff tops again, watching, filming and photographing the surfers, toe in surfing, at JAWS. The helicopters were not around today, guess because it was December the 25th. but everyone was happy to be there on such a glorious day.  What better way is there than to spend the first few hours of Xmas day on the cliffs watching JAWS, and the surfers.   Check out my photo gallery of my selection of photos by clicking the link aboe.

Not only were the waves big yesterday, on the 7th December  but they stayed big on the 8th and the 9th too. So here are more photographs of Surfers surfing the huge waves at Jaws, tow-in surfing with their surfing buddies, on the 8th and the 9th.

The surfers and their buddies on the jetskis were out in large  numbers. The rescue boats were there too of course. The swell started early this morning and by 11am some of the sets coming in were huge. I arrived to take these photos around 9.30 am just as all the locals were leaving to go to work. The pinapple field had a traffic jam i both directions, but it was worth it! Totally worth it. Some serious photographers camped in their trucks and had a great spot first thing this morning, but i have no complaint, i had a great spot too, in the shade.  I got the best weather of the day, even though when i left the waves were still building, the clouds had arrived and a north easterly wind had arrived, which made the waves surfaces pretty choppy.  By the time i arrived home, i heard a report thru the grapevine that three jet skis had been totalled on the rocks at the bottom of the cliffs.
