So far we made it to Taiwan and heading for Jakarta. Cyclone came through Taiwan last night and moving on so we are still on time to catch our next flight. Will be meeting up with the rest of our friends tomorrow as we continue our journey.
Essentials for our trips is the Nakamoto spam musubis! So Ono!
There was about 40 boats who entered the Heeia Kea Jackpot tournament with flat seas. Great diving weather.
James Oshiro and Al Ah Nee was on board and we were excited as the countdown began. Promptly at 630 am. all the boats raced out to the horizon.
Our plan was to head out 30 miles but there were no birds or rubbish in sight. Took 3 knockdowns by 2 onos and a few Mahis but they shook the hook off= rubber hooks? 10 boats weighed in fish with biggest fish a 177 lb marlin winning a cash prize of $3,900. A 149 lb ahi came up in second place, 27 lb Ono, and Mahis also caught. Congrats to all the winners and glad everyone back in safe!
Time to start monitoring the Indian ocean. This has a been a great summer for the Hawaiian Islands as well as Indonesia. Lots of storm activities and back to back swells. Hope the waves continue as we make our way to someplace far away to catch the perfect wave.
