May 18, 2021 Hawaii Surf Report

More Colorful Days Ahead…

Good morning 5:10am.
North shore chest high and fun.
Ala Moana waist high and perfect.
Diamond Head chest high and bumpy.
Trade winds at 25mph.
Sunny, warm, and rainbows.
Going to the sea.
Have a wonderful day!

i drove out to the North shore in the dark, arrived, and the waves were flat.  got back in the car, headed back to town, and had a super good session at Ala Moana.  jumped on Mayuki and i caught my first wave at 7am.  so imagine how early i woke up this morning.  2:30am to be exact.  haha.  it goes to show you how dedicated i am to finding the perfect wave.  i’ll drive all day if i had to…  

my brother invited me to ride dirt bike in the mountains with him and Tony.  i said “no way, i’m going to get hurt riding with you guys.”  so i went to foil instead.  then 30 minutes later, i get a text and this photo from him.  OMG!  i texted him back, “sell my bike!”  haha…

Oldies but Goodies…

found some old photos.  here is Shun and Ryota on their first trip to Hawaii.   they stayed at my house and i still remember them being so curious about everything…

Kelia and Isaiah at Kewalo’s.  this was before the world knew who the Moniz kids were.

i was lucky to go on a boat trip with Dane Kealoha.  this is one of the most legendary Hawaiians ever.  

Seth and Tony in Japan.  from amateur contests to the World Surf League.  dreams come true…

i took this photo of Lance Hookano at Big Rights 15 years ago.  this guy will catch all the best waves and if you’re in his way, he will run you right over.  i’ve seen it many many times…
