As I write this, we are on hawaiian airlines flying back home after a great weekend on the Big Island. Things turned out great for devin on this trip. As you know he competed in the NSSA at Banyans this weekend. He surfed in four divisions and he made three finals and just missed the fourth one by one position. In the finals he place 1st in the open mini groms, 3rd in the explorer super mini grom and 5th in the explorer menehune. That was his first win in NSSA. So stoke for him. Congratulations Devin boy!!! We are very proud of you.

On this trip we stayed at the Kona Bali Kai. It is great place to stay at for a contest or vacation. We didn't even have a need to leave the room, we watched the contest from our balcony. That was the best part for Michelle and I... Having the comforts home while watching a surf contest. Cant complain. Not to mention the added bonus, the sunsets are unreal!! If you ever need a place to stay on the big island, I would definitely recommend the Kona Bali Kai with the ocean view. I want to say mahalo to auntie Tammy and auntie Lynn for their Bali Kai recommendations. Can't forget the bradda's at the Da Poke Shack for hooking Devin up with da poke bowl.
