Winter Brings Massive Swell To Hawaii, Surfers Can't Get Enough

Warning: The video below may incite extreme levels of jealousy, despair, and even rage. East-coasters, watch at your own risk.

That's because last week, Hawaii welcomed the biggest swell of the winter season thus far. The 40-foot waves at Waimea Bay had surfers rejoicing, lifeguards sweating, and everybody else scrambling for a glimpse of nature's might.

Lucky for us, one enterprising drone owner caught it all on camera from a mesmerizing bird's eye view. So snuggle up with your mug of cocoa and dream of the islands. Just try not to cry ... your tears might freeze.
