A Brief Recap

Despite my intentions to blog daily while I was in Hawaii, there's something about being home that just zaps me of all ambition and diligence.

One of the main reasons that I didn't blog much was the small surf. It was so small that if I were still living in HI I wouldn't have even checked the surf, let alone gone out. I only caught a handful of sessions, with the biggest wave that I saw being a two foot (Hawaiian scale) set at some secret spot down south. I tried to catch a sesh at that one spot that I shared in a youtube video a couple of posts ago (even though it was virtually flat), but some locals waved me in after one of them apparently saw a shark.

Without a doubt the hightlight of my trip, as far as surfing is concerned, was catching a sesh with one of my best friends. That sesh kinda reminded me of when we were groms. I might have to do a "Flashback" post on that one of these days.

Below are a few pics from one of the days that I went out. Again, it was small, but at least the conditions were nice. If you want to see a few more pictures of my trip, I posted some pics on Instagram - TEAM_STOKED. They're more lifestyle pics as opposed to surfing pics, but feel free to check them out if it piques your interest. Excuse the quality of the pictures on Instagram; it's the best that my three-year-old, scratched-lens cell phone camera could muster.

I'm not a big fan of McDonalds here in LA, but I am a big fan of McDonalds when I go home. Podagee sausage, eggs and rice platter, Aloha Shoyu, large fruit punch and two fried (not baked) apples pies = no mo' dis kine up mainland, brah.
