WAIMEA BAY, HI (NBC NEWS) — About 40, big-wave surfers hit the water in Waimea Bay, Hawaii to catch what's left of the historic swell.
Conditions at Waimea cleaned up Thursday, enough for surfers to take advantage of the 25-30 foot waves. Occasionally an even bigger wave would hit.
"We do have expert surfers out there," says lifeguard Jeff Okuyama.
