ok, the hype is on! every single surfer in hawaii is waiting for the next summer swell. the boards are waxed up, the gopro’s are charged, and a lot of people are going to be happy this weekend. 6′ solid south swell with perfect off shore trade winds. big bowls and big rights will be the best for sure. stay tuned.
it’s so amazing how fast information gets spread on the internet. 20 years ago, you would have to wait 3 months to see photos of yesterday. but now, you can see yesterday yesterday, and today today. this is yesterday in tahiti. some amazing wipeouts!!! this looks like a crazy wipeout but he’s actually in a safe place.
this guy is going to get pounded!!! ouch!
bodyboarders are so lucky because they can get into the wave much faster than surfers. this guy actually has a chance of making this drop. if it was a surfer, no freaking way!
does this look dangerous? yes it does.

when i first went to japan 23 years ago, i remember seeing a bunch of motorcycle gangs riding throughout japan. i couldn’t believe watching them make so much noise, racing in the streets, going through red lights, and even running away from the police. it was a culture shock experience for me. these guys are called the “Bosozoku” or Motorcycle Gangs from Japan. and when this movie comes out, i’m going to go watch it.
so what do you do on the windy days? clean up. gosh, it’s been so long since i had a chance to do things around my house. i must have threw away thousands of dollars worth of things. things i just don’t use or need anymore. from old magazines to clothes, to drawers, to knives, to cell phones, to a lot of things i’ve been keeping over the years. it’s time to say goodbye to old things and hello to new simple things. i have to say that my life has been a lot more simple recently. i don’t need the materialistic things, i just need good surf and good friends. i’m half way through my life and it’s still a turning point for me. i’m finding out what true happiness is. and i’m enjoying every moment of it. hope you are too.
as for the surf, it should be windy for a while and small waves all week. the pipe bodyboard contest waiting period starts today. hope the boys and girls get some good waves. good luck to everyone!
i was looking back at Go-Naminori WEB MAGAZINE VOL. 5 and was checking out the bikini special. i have to say that the girls are beautiful, the bikinis are small, and GO-NAMINORI OFFICIAL BLOGGER TIARE THOMAS did a great job in coordinating the whole thing. awesome style, awesome photos, and awesome bikinis. and the cool thing about our web magazines is that they are free, and it will online forever! good job Tiare!

wanna hear something weird? ever since kelia won the world title, she’s the most demanded surfer girl in the world now. from interviews, to modeling photo shoots, to spending time with here friends. i wanted to get an interview from her for her fans in japan but at the same time, didn’t want to bother her. so i didn’t. then yesterday, she just pops up at my house. we talk, i grab the video camera, and the timing couldn’t be any better because kelia’s back off to california soon.
i had to make a backdrop at my house because it was raining outside. the cool thing is i had her posters from the party so it couldn’t have been any better.
then i got her to sign them so now i’m trying to figure out who to give it to and how. anyway, we took the video and now i need some time to edit and post it. but before that, i totally forgot about the other video i took in october of her and her brothers longboarding waikiki. i remember getting the call that morning from kelia and there was no way i was going to miss out surfing with my family. it’s times like this that are just too precious for me. when these kids were still babies, i was dreaming of the day we could all go surfing together. i had my camera and if you want to see how fun surfing small waves in waikiki is, check it out. thank you kelia for calling me up, thank you micah, isaiah, joshua, and seth for showing up, and thank you tammy and tony for just being there for the kids and even myself and supporting our surfing careers!
