SPECTACLE

Friday, August 14th, 2015

ANOTHER DAY AT THE BLUE OFFICE

Thursday, August 13th, 2015

1 ono

Launched Kahana bay 0500, straight out 18 miles to LL buoy, first pass small Mahi in the boat, stoked no skunk but couldn’t celebrate due to mild seasickness, the east side is no joke when the wind and swells are ganging up on you, worked the buoy for another hour with no love, switched out the lures to some of Sky’s over ripe dead Opelu and managed to land a super hungry Ono, luckily it didn’t scissor threw the light leader, still couldn’t celebrate due to a twisted stomach, worked the buoy to death for the next hour with no love so the captain decided to head over to U buoy, thankfully he let me man the helm on the way over which almost instantly cured my seasickness, no luck at U buoy either so captain made the call to run the ledge on the way back to Kahana, no takers, back at the ramp my stomach was finally ready for cuzzo lights, ended the day with a proper celebration, many mahalos to Captain Jeff and first mate Sky for another great day at the blue office. Cheers – RM

THE REALNESS

Thursday, August 6th, 2015

So with the recent unveiling of the super lame hoverboard (maybe stupid is a better description) I felt inclined to share with you some real skateboarding on real skateboards. This video which showcases the spots just as much as the skaters is a throw back to classic 90′s street skating. Before it was infected by energy drink sponsorships and big box store logo placement, when skating was done in the street where it belongs not on some arena fantasy course. Having traveled to and skated most of the spots in the clip personally I can’t help but have flashbacks of the good old days. If this video is a sign of the times the future looks bright for the next generation of classic street skateboarders. – RM

SOME THINGS NEVER CHANGE

Wednesday, August 5th, 2015

Some things never change and that’s a good thing when you talking about Waimea Bay in the summertime. Sure the walk down to the beach is longer than most would like and parking and traffic are atrocious. But once you safely navigate through crowds of Military wives, California beach dudes and the Local rock bombers you are greeted by one of the best beaches on the island for sure. The water clarity in the summertime is A+ and trust me I’m a snob when it comes to water clarity and this place is one of my all time favs. Since fishing by boat is prohibited in the bay, there are actually a surprising amount of fish under water for your snorkeling pleasure. Anyways as you can see it was just another day in the paradise that we call home. Cheers – RM
