Surf into Summer with Sunrise: Big Waves to Peak Today

Good morning. We're watching for waves on this first full day of summer.

SURF INTO SUMMER WITH BIG WAVES

Dan says today's the day our south swell will peak. We're talking 6 to 10 footers on the South shore. Ramsay's headed out to the beach to see if it lives up to the hype and brings out the crowds.

TRAFFIC ALERT

Before you head out the door, you should also know that Board of Water Supply crews will be doing work in the Ala Moana area from 9 this morning until 2 PM. They're looking for possible leaks.

HAPPENING TODAY:

President Obama will lay out his plans to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan by the end of the next year. His address is set for today at 2 PM. We'll reveal any new details this morning.

The President will also welcome Asian American and Pacific islander leaders to the White House today.

Meanwhile, one of the candidates who wants his job, Newt Gingrich will make a public appearance, a day after his Finance Chief abruptly quit.

The final shuttle crew will hold a press conference this morning.

And expect an explosive example of why you should let the pros handle the fireworks when the US Consumer Product Safety Commission makes its annual 4th of July warning.

FOODLAND FIGHT FOLLOW UP

Foodland has posted a letter to its company blog saying Mahalo and Aloha to Hawaii Kai.

 

Hundreds turned out for a community meeting at Kaiser High last night to protest the store's end at Koko Marina after 47 years. The CEO says Foodland would like to lease a smaller space if possible.

 

SUNRISE SEGMENTS:

WHAT'S COOKING ON SUNRISE?

We'll wrap up our Wednesday edition up in the kitchen with Chef Wayne Hirabayshi and 'Ahi Poke Musubi with King Crab Namasu."

Hope to see you on Sunrise!
