Longing for Tahiti…

With all the recent exposure and video segments showcasing my 2nd favorite Tahitian right hander, I’m really starting to miss this place. If youʻre lucky enough to be there when the winds are right, youʻll understand why any regular footer would absolutely love this wave… and not want to share it with the world!

#AlohaNamotu13 Part 1…

Fiji has always been one of those bucket list places that I absolutely needed to visit. Iʻve watched the WCT contest at Cloudbreak and dreamed of one day surfing there. Thanks to my many new friends from the “Bula Gang,” last week I did just that. It was an unforgettable experience that I will cherish forever! We spent 7 days on the beautiful island of Namotu, a small private island off the coast of Fiji, neighboring the larger and more infamous Tavaraua. Although the winds and swell didnʻt cooperate the entire trip, I still managed to score a few REALLY fun days at Cloudbreak and fished some of the best grounds iʻve ever seen. Vinaka vakalehu to Alan for organizing the entire trip, Scotty & Mandy, the entire Namotu Crew, and all of my new friends who made this trip one of the best iʻve ever had!

Go Bruce…

Bruce Irons gets the wildcard spot for the upcoming 2013 Oakley Pro Bali. We hope Keramas is going off so he can repeat the 2008 Rip Curl Search victory he had in Uluwatu. Go Bruce!

South Shore Pre-Surf Psyching Song…


The latest single from Ryan Lewis & Macklemore featuring Ray Dalton got me prepared to paddle out the historic South Swell of May 2013, and I heard it’s on again coming early next week in Town. Whenever I saw a set coming I would start whistling this joint and would hear the chorus when I was paddling into the wave. I already have this joint in my headphones and getting the 5’6″ Raynor Darkhorse ready. Let’s gooo!

#TBT…

This one’s for the spongers. Maui boys Mike Kini and Marcus Rodrigues put together a full-length film called Shacks & Shakas (which you can view here for a limited time) a couple years back. Here’s a clip from the movie showcasing Honolua Bay.

Burton, Snow Porn…

I guess this is what you do in Alaska when you canʻt surf or skate. These guys are Pūpule!

Imaikalani Devault from T-Recks Productions on Vimeo.

Kamehameha Maui sophomore, Imaikalani DeVault is up and coming in the surf industry. With the backing of the stellar Volcom Hawai’i coaches (Dave Riddle, Jason Shibata and Kai Borg) and the influence of KS alum Ezekiel Lau, DeVault has a bright future in competitive surfing. His pops, Pat DeVault, is an awesome human as well.
