Wind or Glass?

Little boost on the south shores past few days but gotta hold on to your hats.  Swell already peaked so hurry and get some before it goes.  

Unlike sheet glass barrels of Indonesia.  Sure miss these waves.

Windy weather days

Cross section of the famous Al's sandwich.  Packed with all kinds of ono stuff!  Only available on Red Sea trips or special order

Went to the pier to wish my friend Chris Cargo a happy birthday.  It was a surprise party!

Went for a morning surf up north and now editing another HSDTV show with these windy weather here!  Batten down the hatches for the next 5 days.

Locals only


Past 3 days have been epic! No wind, waves and weekday!

Few spots light up with north swells and this is one of them.

Was hungry so checked out local boy sushi to fill me up.

My friend Shawn Kodani and I had a good time with the best view!

Flat water


Flat water past 3 days! Too flat to fish, so better dive or surf.

Even my crew got bored so he started talking to himself?

Headed in to surf the north shore swell and check out the Tokoro factory to see what's new and trending. Is it time to order a new 2017 quiver yet?
