Got taxed by the man in the grey suit on Friday outside Yoks.
An extra big congratulatory SHAKA goes out to our very own Zeke Lau who took out many a competitor including one Kelly Slater during his ride to victory yesterday at Sunset Beach. With the weather being less then stable I chose to watch the comp live online from the comfort of my house. Chicken skin moment when Zeke pulled into the best barrel of the final heat to secure the trophy and 40k!! Yeah Boy… not a bad days work. – RM
There is nothing more beautiful than a Hawaiian sunset with the exception of a Hawaiian sunrise… haven’t seen one? A must do for any respectable bucket list. With Thanksgiving a couple days away I took some PTO on Tuesday to see if we could pick up some pupus for the big meal. The morning blessed us with a unreal sunrise which looked like Ra himself was straddling the Waianae mountain range… good stuff. After wrestling the elements for a few hours we finally bumped into the fish… plenty to enjoy. Oh that (The West Side) tank top… call the shop they can hook you up. – RM
The last weeks holiday financial juggle had me stressed. But with light winds I didn’t stay stressed for long. Decided a lunchtime paddle on the scupper would remedy any angst. The ocean always calms. Headed to the spot with a new pink papio feather dragging behind the kayak. Nothing for an hour so switched it out to the old faithful while still in the shallows…and as the line was still going out hooked up to a very muscular awa awa. These guys can scrap and this one put on quite an aerial show followed by multiple runs each time I got him close. Ended up bringing him back to the warehouse and throwing him on the grill with hawaiian salt and liberal dousing of ponzu sauce… mean afternoon snack. – RM
