Understanding the nature of wave

After hiking Crouching Lion, we went to Waimea Bay hoping to jump off the rock. Unfortunately, the wave was too strong that the lifeguard wouldn't let anyone jump off the rock. The wave was super strong and as crazy as we are, we went and swim. I learnt a great lesson from this incident. I got pulled by the wave and trying as hard to swim back to the shore, I got hit by the wave 3 times in a row and couldn't catch my breathe. I got hit by the first wave and it felt as if I was punched from every way and hoping to catch my breathe as soon as possible, I manage to catch some breathe before being hit by the second wave. Holding tight on my nose hoping that the wave would just push me back to the shore and at that point, I felt like I was being hit by every angle again. Losing all my strength already and swallowing a lot of water and some sand as well. I could feel some sands on in my throat. Finally, I am able to catch some breathe again and I was hit by the wave again. At that point, I was like, Ohno. I am done this time. I had a little prayer pleading for help and strength. Brennan saw me struggling over there and tried to pull me to the shore. And I manage to escape the narrow death and learn that God answers my prayer. 

I told my mom about it and of course as upset as any parent would be when they learn of their child doing dangerous stuff. But I really didn't know it would be that dangerous and I told my mom how I learnt to pray to my Heavenly Father at all the time, not just in time of need. 

Later that night, we were invited to the girls countdown party. 


I was lying when I said the wave was huge. It really is HUUUUGEE!

Another proof of the HUUUGEEE wave! 

me, Brennan, Cameron and King

That huge wave is heading toward us! 

Everyone look so buff except me.

Imagine I was further out where I couldn't even reach the ground.

Samantha and Ging invited us over for countdown! 

Buddies!
