Funky tails, funky surfing

5' 10 double wing rountails. "Slide, slide, slippity slide, just sail along." Fantastic Voyage. 5 fin convertibles. Cleaner and meaner. Surfing is groovy again!

The little things in life

We found this little guy in the yard. He wasn't scared at all and didn't (was not able to) fly away when we got close to it. So pretty and precious this little bird. The kids really took a liking to him.

Groms Rule!

This past weekend we took the kids out surfing past Kahuku. Hoptong's daughter Sadie, Gen, Gen's friend Kaipo, Seth, and Mia had a blast.
Gen and kaipo were surfing outside while Sadie was all over the break on the inside. I don't get to take Seth out surfing much, but the boy surprised me with a long ride! Its established that he is a goofy footer.


Went up to Pipe to check out the waves. The Volcom Pipeline Pro is on hold, but there was plenty of action in the water. Hoptong Smith was out taking some late drops and finding some barrels. there was alot of north direction so backdoor was getting some hollow ones. The bench was real comfortable. Thats as close as I will get to surfing Pipe.

Beautiful Hawaii

Yuka's friend Satoko came for vacation. Whe wanted to see the beautiful scenery of where we live. Yuka took her to Portlock Point to see the sunset. We take it for granted sometimes living in such a beautiful place. I always forget that those pictures we see in travel magazines could be right around the corner.

Flat days

Even when its flat Sandy Beach still has waves. Probably more dangerous when its small, top to bottom airdrop to head and neck injury. Around the corner this spot was small, but at least had good shape.

Happy New Year 2010!

Happy New Year everybody! Here's some fireworks with family and friends at my house. Greatest invention ever the paperless firecracker string. Of course not as loud as Duck Brand & Thunderbomb, but it gets the job done good enough. Shane was tying all kine 100,000s and we had to "McGyver" a long enough pole to get all that firecracker up in the air. I forgot that i got rid of the traditional mango picker that we always used to use to hold up the firecrackers. My New Years Resolution is just to have more fun. More fun at work, at home, with Seth and Mia. Don't take everything so seriously- No stress out! Have an unreal 2010 !!!!
