She has been so busy training for her Ironman competition in December and I have been working a lot. we don't have as much time to hang out. Stoked on date night!!:) It was part of the Hawaii Film Festival going on this month. I thought it was pretty cool. Bob was the man!!! The film was a documentary about Bob's life when he started to make music.
It was filmed by his girl Esther Anderson.

Battle of the Paddle California

I went to the Battle of the Paddle in California last month. I ended up winning my age group in the 20-29 division stock boards. The funny thing was that I did it on a 10'0 surfboard. I was suppose to have a race board but before the race someone else grabbed my board and left me with a surfboard. I only started doing this whole stand up thing about ten days before the race. Maybe I should start doing more competitions?? Might be good at it hahaha.


Alooooooha:)
