    A swimmer swims in the surf zone at Banzai Pipeline on Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2012 on Oahu's North Shore. He was called in by lifeguards moments after this photo was taken, but did not want to disclose his name. High surf kept lifeguards busy, as thousands came to witness the 15-20-foot waves.

The north and west-facing shores of the state could see surf today up to 30 feet high.
