Work in progress!

Almost done with our Red Sea Dry Box!  A few more add ons and will be ready to test it out!  Today's surf came up fast this morning up north and pretty challenging conditions for the pipe trials.  More big swells coming as winds start to back off..

Under Construction

Today surf looked junky so took out the chop saw and went to town to buy materials to start our Red Sea dry box.

Planning to make a medium size fish box so hopefully it comes out ok so we can start making more dry aku.  Main thing is not to use any kind of treated wood so I went for a cedar wood.  I think you could use pine also.  Stay tuned!

Sliced up some sashimi Otaru for the family dinner.  So good!  


Was looking into making a fish dry box and found this one online.  Will see how my next project goes…Lotsa wind and big waves for this week so be careful out there!

Surf, Shape & Sashimi!

Lotsa  big surf up north!  Pipeline going off along with many other spots!  Got to surf with Mick Fanning today, was cool to see him rip. Who will win this years World title?

Container arrived with all my blanks for next years quiver!  Ha ha!  Order your magic board at Tokoro Surfboards before the blanks go.  Contact Wade and get your new board shaped.

Quick run to the market to see what was on special?  Got a few big boys! Lotsa sashimi for this windy week!

Shark deterrent?

How's this snake pattern?  Wonder if it deters sharks?  May have to put it on my next board?  Past days I got to sample a epoxy board Kelly Slater rides and works great!  First time riding a epoxy board and it has lots of floatation and good speed.  You may want to try one too!

Big surf coming!

North shore dawn patrol with rising swell.  Saw this 9 year old Talen out checking the waves and get barreled.  This young grom is home schooled and wants to be a pro surfer one day!  Got a few fun ones and headed back to the barn.  Big waves coming tomorrow so be safe out there.  Have a great day!

Eat your catch!

Went for a dive with Keith and Maika.  Got lucky with a few tako but Maika got to spear his first fish.  Couple nice maninis.

He cleaned it and prepped it for the fryer.

Learning how to cook his own fish is important.

Then ate it!  Eat what you catch!  Congrats Maika on the nice catch.
