John Clark, the author of Hawaiian Surfing, was the guest speaker last night at the TALK STORY. It ones one of the most educational and informative talks so far. I really enjoyed the subject about how Ancient Hawaiians believe every family had a animal spirit watching over them, and if they (bird, turtle, shark), showed up while you were surfing, that meant they where there protecting you! Hope mines a turtle…Lots of fun! Cant wait for next week.

Someone who’s advice means a lot to me said “You are what you pay for”, so today… I decided to invest in a nice, expensive camera. Im a visual person and I feel I can express myself better with photos then words sometimes.When I made this spontanious decisions, I drove myself to Costco that instant, that way I could not back out! I returned my little camera and upgraded to the EOS REBEL T2i !!! Im in love, let me tell you. What a difference it makes. I feel more professional and ready to take over the North Shore, one photo at a time.
I started a LOOKBOOK account, so follow me and HYPE up my photos.
When I was younger each year my family went beach camping. While we enjoyed the sun and epic surf, my sister and I made it a strange tradition where we would haul our air mattresses down to the beach and race each other to see who could get to the beach first or pull off the coolest moves. Sometimes, we would catch better waves then the surfers or just totally cut them off…Then Yesterday happen!
At Makaha Beach Park,while the waves could not have been more perfect. I got to ride a C4 SUPSQUATCH! I know that sounds a little extreme but its true. Supsquatching, is basically Air Mattresses surfing on steroids! For the first time ever in the history of the Buffalo Big Board Surfing Contest , they held a segment in the tournament for a 7 man team Supsquatch contest. It was the most fun I ever had I wish I could do that everyday for the rest of my life.comment →
Today, I went stand up paddle boarding down the river that curves under the famous Hale’iwa rainbow bridge. This is a great place to get a feel for what Hawaii is really all about. There were tons of fish swimming underneath our boards and we even ran into a few turtles along the way. Willi, the founder of Coconut Adventures, gave us a few pointers on how to paddle up the river the easiest and also how to surf into waves. (that was my favorite part) I love paddle boarding because you don’t realize you just had a massive worked out, until your on the beach craving a smoothie afterwards like me! Its fun, easy to learn, and family friendly. What more can you ask for?
If your ever on the North Shore of Oahu and want to get a taste and tour of the real hawaii, I really recommend getting a tour from the best. Coconut Adventures Hawaii are local SUP instructors who know the island very well and can give you some great stories about the North Shore and the rest of Oahu. Coconut Adventures makes paddling on the North Shore fun and safe as well.
I’m wearing my new reto, 80′s, board shorts from VANS, that I am in love with because they fit so well and I hate when my butt shows when I wear just a bikini while SUP. Plus, that highlight yellow makes it easy for people to see me when I’m in the ocean surfing or swimming!
BRUCE BROWNS TALK STORY NIGHTS
Bruce Brown had us laughing, listening, and applauding at the Talk Story Wednesday Night! The Famous Bruce Brown, director of the classic surf movie The Endless Summer, was the guest speaker last night at the Talk Story held in Surfer the Bar, at the Turtle Bay Resort Wednesday evening. The Talk Story turned into ” The Endless Night”, full of confessions, a jump in interview with the famous Dick Brewer, and backstage knowledge about the makings of the film. Bruce almost had us falling out our seats in laughter, telling story after story about the most unimaginable experiences!
Jodi Wilmott, the host of all the Talk Stories, had to step back at one point while Bruce and his son Dana, went into details about their encounter with lions in South Africa. Bruce Brown is character, that’s for sure and you can tell Dana has grown up with Bruce’s best qualities in himself! Over all, the night couldn’t have gone any better and the place was packed, (Most people had to stand because there weren’t enough seats!) The night ended with a signing and photos that lasted a good hour because there were so many people in line. If you are planning on going to the next Talk Story, come early so you can get a great seat!
