NORTH SHORE (HawaiiNewsNow) - The waves were big and booming on the North Shore for the O'Neill World Cup. Surfers had to rely on 3 jet skis to get out to the channel. The 12 to 20 footer were quite a challenge.
Hawaii's own Mason Ho took second in his heat to advance to the quarterfinals, where he'll now face Sunny Garcia. Garcia, who is a six time Triple Crown champion, posted the highest marks of the day with a 16.4 out of 20. The huge surf is said to be the biggest ever for the second jewel.
