Almost Made It Part 1....

Here's a sequence of the first Pipeline swell.
The first swell of the year is always SCARY.
I'll admit I was pretty nervous. I guess you just gotta go.
There's no warm up. You're either ready or you're not.
No matter what the swells keep rolling in....

I got pretty deep on this one and almost came out. The drop was pretty fun.
Next time I hope I make it hahaha...

continued in part 2

Almost Made It Part 2...

If you look closely you can see my head in the lip.
If the exit didn't pinch on me I would have come out of that one.
Almoooooooost!! ahhhhhhhhhhh....

The last two days have been fun but hard to take. The crowd has been soooooo crazy from the Triple Crown sometimes you have to catch waves that you normally wouldn't go for.
It's not always nice and easy surfing heavy barrels! I have been getting beat up the last two days by Mother Pipeline!!! I got slammed on the reef two times yesterday...
I guess you gotta pay your dues....

My motto: Take a few on the waves on the head and get rewarded with a mental BARREL!!!!
Hopefully I get rewarded soon hahaha!!!! Those beatings aren't so fun!!

Banzai Pipeline

Pipeline was going off today!!! It was 8-12 feet and perfect. The crowd was super crazy due to the Triple Crown season. I got one super deep barrel and got pinched just as I was coming out. It was the longest backside tube I've ever gotton at pipe. Mental!!!

Here's a picture of the drop on that wave. It was a pretty late drop. The sequence is coming soon. Tomorrow it's on!! Leeeet's goooo!!!!

North Shore Triathlon

Juri did the Haleiwa Triathlon on Sunday. It was really fun to watch. I got to see her swim, ride by on the bike, and run. I was sooo proud of her!! The amazing thing is that she ended up getting third place in her age division 25-29 yrs and she got a trophy!! Only the top three got trophies. It was also the biggest female age group in the event.
She is SUPERWOMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CONGRATS BABY!!!!!!!!!

Back on Track!!

Last week was a really difficult week for me. I lost early at the OXBOW contest and it really hurt. It was a hard pill to swallow. Maybe losing can also be a good thing. It has motivated me even more to pursue a World Title. I'll be putting my head down a training harder than ever to be the best I can. I am getting back out in the water and hitting the lip!!!

I have been shooting for the Hawaii issue of On The Board Magazine this week. Here's a few shots. They are from Pupukea and Off The Wall. My friend Moonwalker took the photos. Big ups!!

Getting a little air......
Rasta cutback.....
Tha set up.......

A big swell is coming on Monday!!! Leeeeet's gooooo!!!!
