i had a great lunch with Akudo-san today. a super nice guy who owns a shop in tokyo called “Standard California.” always nice to see him here in hawaii!
after a fun surf in the morning, i was totally burnt out. tired of getting burnt from the sun, and tired of paddling so much. i decided to take a nap in the afternoon but when i went to check the waves again at 1:30, i couldn’t believe how good it was! so i waxed my board and had a super fun session. only one local out, and many many perfect overhead waves!!!! score! guys were getting barreled left and right. the summer swell continues!
hikaru-san took this photo of dave and i hanging out in chiba. super fun time surfing a single fin on some perfect beach break waves. i’m looking forward to this years typhoon season in japan and when i get the call, i’m there!
photos never die! i was looking at some old photos i took 3 years ago and found this one never published or never seen by anyone. this is Maoh Toda getting ready to pull into a huge barrel while Toda-san watches. this made me feel like shooting photos again! maybe swim out for some fisheye shots this week? i’m going to go get my camera ready now!
there is a SoHa store in Kahala Mall. super popular with local people and super popular with japanese tourists.
they sell all kinds of cool shells and things to make your house feel like you’re at the beach.
the SoHa Diffuser is the best. kind of expensive but lasts for 2 years. coming home with the fresh aroma is cool.
my recommendation is the Moana diffuser oil. it contains gardenia, pikake, lilac, hyacinth, mimosa, flower, and rose. made in hawaii ne! i have one in my room and love the smell when i sleep at night, and wake up on the morning.
