Chillin on the north shore of Oahu with the family and the Blanco's. All I can say is that we are lucky to live in Hawaii.

Day two of the surf trip.

Well it's now day two if the Blanco's surf trip. It started with a drive to the east side. Once there things didn't look that great for the kids. So we had to make decision where to go to next. And here we are at old fateful "Kewalos". It's about 1-2 feet and ripable. Well that's what Devin, Nicole, and Tia are doing, ripping it.
After this session, we need to stop and get some ding repair stuff to fix some boards. Then to top it off, we will hit another late session at hau bush.
What can I say... Another fun filled day with the Blanco's. Chee hooo!!!

Hanging with the Blanco's

This is day one of the Blanco's vacation. We are at pyramid rock and it's firing (4-6 feet Hawaiian). Jordan and Simon are out there battling the conditions. Hopefully they get a couple of waves. Devin, Nicole, and Tia decided to sit this session out. That was a good decision on their part.
I don't know what up with this weather (lots of rain) right now but it really sucks. We need the rain but this is getting carried away.
Well people you have a great day!!!

Here's the scoops from this weekend.

Aloha Gang...
Well first of all the HSA surf contest was cancelled due to lack of waves and the weather. I have mix feeling about the contest being cancelled.  Devin doesn't get to compete and surf. But I get to do things around the new house. The house part can go either way. Hahaha... Good news, we are almost at a point where we can call our new place "Home". And I cant wait for that to happen.

In between taking the kids surfing(very rare) and house work, we made our way to "Blue Hawaii Surf" Pearl Ridge to meet our friend Joel and the rest of Hurley Surf team. It was great event...Hurley and Blue Hawaii provided free stickers, posters, and hats. what a great way to start my Christmas shopping. Just kidding. If you do get a Hurley hat from me, I bought it. hahaha.

Also the Blancos are trying to fly home today. but we need to see if they get out. Hopefully they do!!! Once they finally get here, the surf sessions for two weeks is on.

Well gang that about it for now. Will keep you posted.

Busy Weekend

It was one of those weekends where there wasn't enough time to complete everything that I wanted to do. But for the most part, I did get one major task complete. I finished building the surf rack for the garage. All the boards are out of the way and now we have room to park our cars.
Also had an unscheduled tasking of replacing the alternator on our beach truck on Sunday. But I can say the beach truck is good to go.

I want to thank Kaz for picking up Nicole and Devin to take them surfing. I was able to scratch that off my saturday to do list. Thanks again!!!

Want to also thank Arron from red dragon photography for the photo shoot this weekend. Looking forward to see how they turn out. Mahalo!!!

Well gang that's it for now. I will keep you update on the the haps ( surf contest, blanco' arrival, and what ever else) for this weekend.

Something Different...Skating!!!

I am back after a week of moving into our new house. Devin got to surf a few times this past week up at north shore and our spot Hau bush. So today he decided to skate. Here we are at the Hickam hanger skating. Well he is and I'm watching.
Before we hit the skate park, we were at the Air National Guard family day event. Where there was a lot of food to be consumed. I can say I had my share. Hahaha
This has been a busy day so far. Not sure if we will make it to the north shore for the RVCA BBQ and volcom skate demo. But we will see how things goes after Devins skate session.
Till that decision is made. Alooha!!!
