So much (dare I say it) El Nino swell pumping through the Pacific lately. David and Scott break down the seasons from Todos Santos to Peahi. Scott discusses the highlights of Surf Expo, and David offers some insight into latest industry business news. Enjoy!

The Eddie Aikau event organizers. Why didn’t it run on the 15th?
Kelly was out, JJF was out. Those there are claiming that the event was run-able, and that it was the most contest-able it’s been in 6 years. Hopefully we’ll get another opportunity in the coming weeks. Here’s one of Kelly’s waves from that day.
A great day at #Waimea was only overshadowed by the #DayOfDays at #Jaws yesterday but that doesn’t detract from some great afternoon surf and a relatively empty lineup. My last one last night. @john_john_florence @nathan_florence @landon_mcnamara @haynsupahman @twakita59360 holding it down with just a handful of others while I was out. Video by @peterkinglajolla.
