Some seriously surfable waves have hit Hawaiian shores, causing a school of surfers to grab their mother's ironing boards and hit the waves. Forecasters say that waves could reach heights of 50ft (15 metres) by tomorrow.
When I lived out on Bondi Beach - I remember when a storm caused waves to hit the 20ft mark, and they were positively huge.
According to reports, Hawaii hasn't seen such large waves since 2004 or 1998, and teams of hard-bodied tow-in surfers are flying to Maui from Brazil, South Africa and Australia.
A legendary big wave surfing contest, the Quicksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau, may be held today for the first time since 2004 if waves reach a minimum of 40 feet (12 meters), organisers said.
