check out these amazing drone photos by Todaheli! omg, i will never forget this session. big smiles, nice waves, big shark, nice friends, big memory. here is Maki-san on a very beautiful mirror wave.
so stoked to see Takami-san catching so many good waves too. it was the 4 of us taking turns and cheering each other on. to me, that’s what surfing is all about.
and i was lucky to get a few good ones for myself. it felt like we were on a boat trip somewhere in the other side of the world.
Iwata-san asked me if that that island was “lion island.” and after i looked at it again good, it did look like a lion. but it’s actually called “rabbit island.”
the best hawaiian plate on the planet. i love it!
ate some yuke or “raw beef” the other night. the best in hawaii for sure! and bummed japan don’t serve this anymore.
i want to congratulate Gen for catching his first Ulua! we were just talking about diving a few days ago while surfing big rights when i told him, “hey, your day will come.” and yesterday was his day. i’m so stoked for you dude!
check out this photo Yumi-chan sent me. look good and you will see something amazing.
yes, a rainbow around the shadow of the airplane. omg, that’s the first time i seen something like this.
more and more police shooting people in america. and more and more people shooting police in america. it’s actually getting kind of ugly. i hope the violence will stop. seeing these images on the news makes me sick. so sick that i felt like going back 100 years in time. and that’s where i’m going right now. old school hawaii.
Kamadare Tonkotsu Ramen! Thank you Matsushita-san!
