End of a surf season and a start of another

Wow is all I can say about the last two months. Devin competed in the NSSA nationals at lowers and Surfing America at Huntington. First was lowers...Lowers was all time. It was about 3 to 4 feet the whole time we at lowers. During Devins heat of the 11 and under, the waves weren't showing as it was earlier. Devin surfed really well but he ended up just missing the next round by a .02. So our time at lowers came to an end and it was time to move on to Huntington to practice.
Devin had two NSSA divisions (Mini grom and super grom) to compete in. In the mini grom the same thing happen again, he need a .3 to advance. But in the super grom he advanced to the quarter finals and just missing the semi's in fourth. And with that our national run came to an end.
Overall it was a great experience for Devin. But he did surf really well and now he knows what to expect when it comes to national level surfing next year.
We want to thank Aerial7, Ransom, and FCS for hooking Devin up. Aerial7 mahalo letting us hang out and hooking the kids up with some sick headphones. Also Ransom once again for letting the Cru from Hawaii come through. FCS for hooking devin up with some new FCS fins.
A Huge Mahalo goes out to the Blanco's for putting up with the brue cru for three weeks. Can't thank you guys enough.

It was a great trip and end of a surf season. Now we are on the Garden Isle to start the new surf season. Let's do this!!!

Till next time peace...

HSA State Championships

If you didn't know Devin and Nicole surfed in the HSA State Championships at Ala Moana Bowls this past week.The conditions at Bowls couldn't have been any better... 2 -3 feet with occasional 4 footer rolling through.

Nicole surfed in the Girls 12-13 division. She surfed in one of the first heats of the day. The waves wasn't in perfect form yet, but there was some good ones to be had. Nicole surfed really well in her heat and was able to advance to the semi final. In the semi's, she was once again surfing really well but didn't get that one wave she needed to advance to the finals. Over all she was stoke with her finish. But she said it would have been better to advance to finals. That's ok... you did great and especially when your having fun out there!!
Nicole on one of her waves.

Devin surfed in the Menehune shortboard division which is the 11 and under. He advanced through four rounds and won a couple of heats in the process before the semi final. In semi final Devin ended up posting his highest score of the event, a 9.5! He was stoke with his score, but he was even happier with the announcement that he had won the semi. Then it was time for the final. The final was stacked with the best surfers from a cross the state and some great waves to be surfed. So the stage was set. All the kids surfed really well and it was just a matter of who was going to get the best wave. Devin had some great medium size waves but not the one he needed in the end. He just missed a solid four foot wave that could have possibly been a very high scoring wave. So he settle for the next wave that didn't open up for him in the closing seconds. After surfing four rounds and a semi final,  Devin ended up placing "3rd" in the HSA State Championships final!!! 

Devin with the hardware.
We are super stoked for Nicole and Devin and their accomplishments this season. 

"Our surf Family"

We want say thank you to Nicole and Devin's sponsors, friends, and family for the support and believing in them. We cant say thank you enough.

Wow... it been awhile since I posted anything about anything. I guess we have been busy lately or it seems that way.
Heres the latest....surfing, soccer, and everything in between.
Surfing: getting ready for HSA states and NSSA Nationals. We have been Ewa a lot lately and of course kewalos on the weekends. Come to find out Devin did not make it to the VQS championships. They ended up taking only the first finisher instead of the top three. Wish we would have known that from the beginning.

Soccer: Nicole is playing again. So that means our weekends just got a lot more busier. It's ok, we really enjoy watching her play soccer and we support our kids in what ever they do.

Everything in between: working on house, cars and the honey do list. Don't need to say more. Hahaha

Well that's it for now. Till next time Aloha!!!

Surf Week Update

All I can say this crazy week has come to an end and now I can finally rest. 
It all started early morning Wednesday with us working on the Hawaii 5-0 set as extras. It was a great experience to be apart of it, but I would not do it again. 
Then we jump right into the Hawaii NSSA Regionals Championships on Thursday thru Saturday. It was a great event held at Kewalos in 2-3 foot surf. Devin boy had a great showing by advancing to three out four division finals.
Open Mini Grom............3rd
Explorer Super Grom....2nd
Explorer Menehune.......6th
In the fourth division the open boys he advanced to the Repo and place 5th. 

Then on Sunday we finished  up the other half of HSA at Makaha. It was a solid 3-4 feet with some off shore winds. So it can be said the kids scored a great surf session at Makaha. Devin made the finals once again and place 3rd. 
The week prior HSA, Nicole surfed in her girls 17 and under division and advanced to repo round.  Though she didn't make it to the finals, she was surfing really good.

Well thats the update from a crazy week. Now it's time for me to get some sleep.
Yah right!!!

The Hardware!!!

Not HauBush

Surfing at our other spot today. Not big but good enough for the kids. We like to call it family time or just brother and sister having fun together. Either way they are getting water time for the contest at Makaha this weekend. Hopefully we are blessed with waves for it.
Well let me get back to watching the kids surf.

Peace and have a good one.

Freestyle Watches

Devin just received another set of great freestyle watches the other day. I tell you what when a box comes in with his name on it he's all smiles. After opening the box he was stoke to find a gromtide and shark watch that he likes to wear while surfing or just cruzing around.
If you haven't got your new 2011 freestyle watch, what are you waiting for. This years line of watches is sick as always. As you can see in the 2011 catalog in the picture. Go to my links and check out the freestyle site to find your watch.
I hope you find your watch. Till next time.

Hump Day Surfing

Here we are on the north shore of Oahu for a late surf session at Ehukai. Of course the kids are out while I have the camera duties once again. I can't complain to much because I enjoy watching them surf. Or at least I think so. Hahaha
From the looks of things the HSA turtle bay contest will be canceled once again for the second week in a row. Oh well I guess we get to free surf all weekend instead or clean the house. What to do.
That's it for now....peace.

Working on the surfboards

Working on Devin surfboards. Removing old deck pads and adding the Ransom deck pad and decals. The ruff part is taking off the old adhesive without any solvents. Help!!! Hahaha. The boards are looking sick!!!

Ransom Cru Member

Congrats to Devin boy who is now part of the Ransom team.
If you don't know what Ramson is, they are a sick surf wax manufacture. Its by far my favorite wax to use on my board for awhile now. They also carry other products (deck pad, leashes, day board bags for 5'0 and up) that you can see in Devins picture. We have been doing this surf thing for awhile now and Ransom has board bags and other items that is actually made with the grom in mind.
So check out the Ransom website in my links to find out more about them.
A big MAHALO goes out to the Ransom Cru.
Congratulations Devin Boy!!!!

Nicole's Birthday Race

At Podium Raceway for Nicole's birthday race. She took second against Devin. It's her birthday but her brother still didn't let her win. Hahaha. To bad big brother Jordan didnt race with them. That would made things even more enteresting. Jordan ended up racing against the big dogs and came in second.
It looked like a lot of fun out there racing. The kids validated that by there smiles on thier faces.  If you ever get a chance... check out Podium Raceway and get your race on.
The race is on!!

The results

Once the racing was complete, the kids work up an appetite. So we went to Nicole favorite place to eat Genki Sushi. Of course I won that race by having the most plates in front of me. hahahaha. Now to top it off we went Grandma's for some ono cake and ice cream. 

What a great day with my beautiful daughter on her special day. Happy Birthday to my Nicole!!!

Peace out Homies!!!

Hanging with Brada Mark

Great day of surfing with my kids and good friend Mark. We met up at Glass doors and it was head high and glassy. Can't ask for it to be any better than that.
The kids and Mark were ripping as always. As for me I managed to catch a couple of waves. Some good and some on the head. Thats just the way it is for me. hahah. But i will say, my new Dennis Pang board is the bomb!!! Other than me taking cracks on the head, everybody had a great time out there today.
After that epic surf session, we hit up Dong Yangs for lunch. Of course we had to get the meat chun plate because it is so Ono (good).
With a surf session and a great lunch under our belt what can I say other than, it was another great day Hawaii.
