The Koolau Mountains

Happy Easter Sunday

Hope that everyone had a happy Easter. We got together with some friends to have an Easter egg hunt at the beach. Thankyou Nobu for all of your hard work cooking all the food for all of us.

Getting the hang of it.

The rides were a little short, but Mia is getting up faster and more frequently. We stayed in the water off and on for almost 3 hours.

We love it!

My family loves spam. Its good for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Wash Me

Its hard to watch three dogs at one time. This dog rubbed itself all over the dirt for at least 30 seconds while his buddies were getting a wash. One of the dogs is getting washed in the background. These two were waiting patiently walking around and on the surfboards.

Surf Sesh

Not so crowded. John mid turn. Damn waterspots.

New fin design. The base allows the fin to swivel right and left to create tighter turns. It was okay- because it swayed to and fro', it felt really unstable on bottom turns.

Tip 2 Tip - Seven Ghosts: Tidal Fantasy

I think most of my surfer friends have seen this already, but for those of you that haven't seen this wave you're in for a treat I have never seen anything like this; perfect waves in some Indonesian river. Check it out. I just posted it so I could come back and watch it over and over again.

Yuka was so close to buying a boat. It would have been the ultimate impulse buy.

Wailupe Beach Park

There were some waves out there, but I was too lazy to make the 10 minute paddle.

Makapuu after hours

After 5 pm the lifeguards go home and the surfers come out to play. Theres practically no one in the water and the waves look rideable.

Island Hopping

Kahoolawe. The military used this island for bombing and target practice. Will they ever be able to grow anything here? Maalaea harbour. The world's fastest wave in the world breaks here. Kona airport on the Big Island of Hawaii
