Fall Training

Went to North Shore last week but it was too hectic, gotta keep practicing at Barbers for a while. Hopefully I'll still get in a North Shore 4'+ day before the end of the year, but for now...

yeah budy, got me a gopro hd and an old school single fin 8'4" downey longboard. the guy who shaped my board is the one who says if the eddie contest has good enough waves to happen each year so this board will rip any size. but im still learning to stand up. i'm going to try to document me learning how to surf.

Sandys and Standup

I was just in time for the first south swell in a while when I headed down to Sandys on friday. about 1-3' but pretty windy. First time bodyboarding in a while so I went over a few times and didn't go too big. Still had some fun times and seen the same regulars out there having a good time. Didn't get a prime parking spot since it's furlough friday so I only managed to snap this one photo right past Hanauma Bay heading back to Waipi'o.

was my first time Stand Up Paddleboarding ever. I just went to Hale'iwa Harbor with my sisters family and we just bbq'd and cruised til work started. PADDLEBOARDING IS NOT AS EASY AS IT LOOKS! So I was paddling out and thought I was killing it because of how fast I could go, but when I decided I wanted to go back in I found out my problems. First I couldn't turn the board and once I didn't realize how far the wind took me. I must've paddled in the same spot for 5 minutes until some local guy helped me out. First thing was I was holding the paddle backwards. It is also quite the workout. Pretty embarrassing to need to be saved on my first time but once I got the hold of it I loved it. Kept going back and forth. It would be sick to use for lazy flat days to check out the north shore beaching this summer.

I'll be heading back to the beach soon for more practice in the water after my sunburn stops stinging so much.

Optimus prime is a G

Just got done watching Transformers 2 and its crazy. Worth the $11.50. Optimus Prime is a g this time not like the panzy he was in number one but they made starscream into a little girl not the badass I thought he would be. Megan Fox is a warrior goddess. She controls humans, the military, and even decepticons but we knew that before the movie started. Shoot its just two hours of action and hyped up music. Makes me wanna pull into some five foot sets that are going off at the home breaks right now. Oh I'm transferring to whatever school Sam W attends cuz boulder asu and georgia don't got nothing on those girls. Damn mobile blogging is the ish.

With the first pick in the 2009 NBA draft...

Got to check out see the Staples Center and LA Live for the first time yesterday. I went with my cousin and his friends to the LA Clippers draft party at the ESPN Zone right across the street from the Staples Center. It was fun celebrating the basketball season weeks after the Lakers won. I must be good luck for this town. Lakers win it all, Dodgers are killing it, and Clippers get the first pick in the draft. We had a big crew so we were able to be loud and take up lots of space. Everyone was in party mode at 4 in the afternoon since we were in the VIP section where they were serving free drinks and food. Clippers got Blake Griffen which was no surprise but ESPN kept talking about some crazy trades going down including Ty Lawson to the Nuggets. We stayed through the whole first round and then headed out to King Taco for some ono mexican food that I felt burning up my stomach all this morning.

Bodyboarders gone wild!

Finally got to surf for the first time since middle of may. Went to the Ave's on both saturday and sunday and they were like two different spots. Saturday was a pretty sick sesh with a couple of cool guys. It was barrelling nice on the inside and had some 2 1/2'ers on the sets. Sunday was a totally different story. It was super choppy and I could only go straight. Plus it felt like I was was bodyboarding in the grass during the winter rains back home cuz everytime I came up from duckdiving I was wrapped in strands of seaweed. The long strands of kelp looked like snakes in the water. It was pretty much a mission to be out there. Only positive was I GOT TO SURF N JUST BOARDSHORTS. I finally didn't have to get fully suited up and look like a sitting seal in the ocean. I'm getting some of my natural color back now. I know blogging isn't anything without pictures so i'll work on it next time. Down to weekly surf sessions so until then..Aloha.
