It’s Hawaii end of the year time again…getting boards ready…..hoping…some of us hope to make a few heats and score a few points, some of us hope to win a contest, some us hope to get on the world tour, some us hope to stay on the world tour, a few hope to be Triple Crown Champ and even better, crowned World Champ…….all of us hope to score a barrel of a lifetime…may we all have a season to remember…
Thanks for the photos, Darrol Staples…the Braai king of the world.
When we’re in Hawaii we spend most of our time watching the ocean, checking the swell…the next set…..the next wave, who’s doing what on the wave..etc – of that we have lots of photos, but if you want to check out the “street scene” have a peek at these street photographers sites:
Can I use this as an excuse for loosing my heat?
Normaly, the media will start the Hawaii season expose with some deep “pit” photos – not to be – the ocean is flat – Surfline starts with some tailwafts, slashes and airs….check it out…..happy to be part of it !!
Some more surf shots from Spex. There has been so much action the last couple days that I haven’t even taken my camera out – stupid me. Thanksgiving feeds, Black Friday shopping. And some fun waves. It’s been pretty fricken good.
Firstly, well done to my house mate Heath Joske on making the final at Haleiwa. Joel Parkinson won, but Heathy (with the best Mustache for Movember in my books) did us all proud, surfing from round 1.
We have had some really good waves lately. Been surfing a lot. It’s been good. Thanks to Sasha ‘Spex’ Specker for the surf shots!!
The bike path – it must be one of the most beautiful bike paths in the world. While cycling under lush vegetation and palm tree’s you will definitely run into some interesting character’s (people walking their pet parrot), sign’s warning you of dangerous surf and of course step of the path onto the beach, look left and you will see a beautiful sunset!!
I had a surf with Archy (Matt Archbold) at Off The Wall yesterday. I don’t know too much about him. I know he was a bit of a wild child and charger. He is still the man out at Off The Wall. I really respect him and his surfing. He rips!
Pretty stoked with this photo I took of a sunset a couple days ago…..
Hawaii has been fun so far. Today is unbelievably dead flat, but there have been some waves around. Pretty frothed out on the swim I had with Dale checking out the dreaded reef at Pipe/Backdoor. If it’s possible, I am more scared than ever before of the place.
