A monster storm located 1200 km north of Hawaii generates wind waves with maximum wavelengths of 150 m. Calculate how much time you have to get to the north shore and surf the first big waves. Assume that the average depth of the North Pacific is 3800 m, and that there is no dissipation of wave energy as these waves propagate. Give answer in hours.
