Just back from filming at the Gene Higa Memorial Spearfishing Tournament held at Puiki Pavillion in Wailua. Lots of good times and lots of people showed up this year. Clif Cheng aka "Voice" on the left is the man who does all the layouts for HSD Magazine and is a very talented guy. Thanks Clif for all your hard work!
All the bruddah's was out representing their ohana from the Big Island to Kauai to the Westside of Oahu they came. Conditions were rough this year but all the divers managed to return safely.
Calvin Lai and Hanalei Adric took home 1st place with this 19 lb. kahala and 66 lb. Ulua. They both were sick with a cold and managed to win the whole event.
After the dive competition Chef Nico and reigning Iron Chef, Kimi Werner went to town for 1 hour and created 3 dishes each using the secret ingredients of "Omilu, Nenue, and Ta'ape".
After our judges deliberated the score differed in 2 points, with a new Iron Chef, Nico Chaize! Congratulations Nico and to all the divers for their support!
