Body surfers and boogie-boarders enjoyed the large south swells at Point Panic near Kewalo Basin yesterday. Surfers flocked to Oahu's south shores yesterday even though tradewinds made the high surf less than ideal. City lifeguards assisted about 50 surfers whose boards broke or who just needed some help at popular surf spots between Ala Moana and Waikiki yesterday. None needed rescue. But many beachgoers were cautioned against entering the ocean. A high-surf advisory was in effect yesterday, but the National Weather Service expected to lift the advisory this morning. Lifeguards said surf in Waikiki was in the 4-foot range.
