Getting Props

Although it took me a few weeks to answer Khari Johnson's interview questions, the fact is... I answered 'em. Thanks Khari for being patient and for the cool props on IB's Patch.

Check out what I'm talking about:

It's About Who You Know

First off... Have a fun and safe St. Patrick's Day! Okay, now to the goods...

Some say that SUP is a fad. Whether it is or not, I like it. Actually, I love it. Especially when my wife asks me to go paddle. What I trip out on is, why it took so long to hit the masses. It feels like it was just yesterday that Laird Hamilton led the charge to put SUP on the wave riding map. Since then many new SUP starts up companies and SUP magazines have hit the market.

I've said it before, it's not just what you know but who you know. I have great news today! I, I mean 'WE', now know someone in the industry! Good friend and IB lifeguard, Mike Pilgrim, has been importing SUP boards for the past year or so and today we're going to sit down and figure out how to get you a Surf Craft Paddle Board on the cheap. Because you know MannyV, I'm going to make sure that a Surf Craft Paddle Board is your first quality SUP board you own. So stay tuned and I'll have that discount code for you here first! For now, peep his site and take a look at his boards:

Jeff Flindt and I took out the boards while he and his wife where in town.

PS: It's going to be a matter of time before my photos flood the Surf Craft website. I'm excited!

Mixed Up

Today was one of those days when you look out to the waves and spend more time deciding whether to go out or not than just jumping in and going for it. I was on the brink of calling it a day. But after seeing a few couples paddle out, I pulled out my wetsuit and suited up.

This is what I would've missed:

Pete cranks off the top.

Back From Paradise

It's been three days since I've returned from the North Shore of Oahu and I'm still organizing all the stuff I've unpacked. So give me a day or so to get back on track here. For now, take a look at one of the photos from the morning session before my flight back to the mainland. More goods to come!
