Buffalo Big Board Event @ Makaha
I went to Makaha to see the Buffalo Big Board Event. It was a beautiful day out there. Here is one of the canoe teams getting a nice wave. Hoptong Smith of Makaha and his partner took first place in the team bodysurfing divison. I've seen him win on a shortboard, alaia board, and now no board at all. Grace team rider Yutaro Watanabe came in 4th place in the international division. This is the first time I experienced a contest where it was all about family and friends and not about winning or losing. Seth and Mia now know the word and the place" Makaha" and are already talking about going back there.
