Drowning at Kehena


Just a reminder that swimming at Kehena can go very wrong. No mention of high surf. The circumstances will be further investigated

It's a good idea not to swim alone. Having a swim buddy there who will pay attention notice first signs of distress could make all the difference.

That's truly a shame. My sympathy to his family.

I know the rocks they are talking about in the article--there's a great swell there and I've seen people jumping off the rocks into the swell. Things can go wrong without much warning and you can be Michael Phelps and still run into trouble.
