PINKY POP JUNE


My paintings so far for the month of June have had a hue of pink.
Maybe all those beautiful sunrises we've been witnessing recently are secretly channeling themselves through my knife!

THE BOARD OF PUKAPUKA ~ Nitro Surfboard Painting



Headed out to Waialua to pick up my new custom 5'8" Eric Arakawa Nitro.
Couldn't wait to paint this "blank canvas". The inspiration for this board came from my Robert Dean Frisbie South Seas books.

"The Board Of PukaPuka"







This board was custom made to the same measurements as my
"Tiki's In Converse" Nitro but with a bit more rocker.

Twinzies:

A KNIFE TRIP TO MAUI


Haven't been off the island of Oahu for a very long time now.
Missing the outer islands, so I took a little "knife trip" to Maui.

SOUTH SWELL IS HERE!



The last week of May finally gave us some fun surf. Dean taped me on a few glassy lefts. I'm obviously no pro, but WHO CARES!
When your mornings start like this, you can't help but be STOKED ALL DAY LONG!

YOU DON'T KNOW TILL YOU GO


These past 7 weeks have been really disappointing surfwise. First, it was windy and choppy for the entire month of April, and then when the winds did finally die down, the water went flattycakes. You can read the surf report to get a basic idea if it might be decent, sometimes they are correct, and other times, not even remotely close to what is going on out there. You don't really know till you go.

Last Wednesday we headed back to Sandy's for the third disappointing day in a row. We found it totally flat yet again, but luckily the sunrise decided to give us a special treat and we stayed around to soak it all in. Even if we didn't get to surf, the beautiful morning sky made it worth the trip.

I am happy to say that this morning was the first time in exactly 52 days that the waves decided to give us something to have fun with. It was a beautiful morning, with another AWESOME sunrise - made even better by the fact that we were watching it from the water instead of the parking lot - super glassy, no wind conditions, and even a visit from a friendly monk seal to add to an already perfect morning. Guess it was worth the wait.
