Today I had the honor of sharing Stand Up Paddling with Samantha Boyd ( Sam ). Her second time on the SUP and first on the Ocean. Met early on the beach and paddled for a couple hours with Sam, Eric Rhuland, Eric's friend and Jesse. Winds offshore flattening out the surf made it easy to paddle. We experienced lots of sea life; lots of bait, sharks dolphins and skates and rays. .
Then Jesse and I did a 5-6 mile down winder in the afternoon. At one point Jesse and I encountered several pods of dolphins that hung with us for a while. The tide moved in and the tiny little waves began to break. We actually were able to catch the waves made possible by the Stand Ups.. Jesse and I spent 6 hours paddling this spectular fall day. Tonight ''Polynesian paralysis''' will set in..

Famed Waterman Brian Keaulana discusses his love of Hawaii and what it means to be able to live, work and surf there. Brian is an expert stand up paddler and has followed in his father's footsteps as a lifeguard captain of the Makaha coastline. Scott Hawaii's slippah (sandals) manufacturer pays honor to this master.
Brian's quote: ''..no matter what you do. You need to wash that clutterness in your head away. Jumping in the Ocean diving, surfing, swimming just clean slates everything, wipes the mind free and you re-freshed again....''
I'm sure thats how we all feel when we head for the water. There is a waterman in all of us..

Photographer Scott Moody sent me a series of pics from the Hurricane Bill Sat session. The sequence shot was taken on the dropping tide as the winds layed down. Some how I don't remember this wave due to the fact I paddle surfed for 5 hours that morning and caught a lots of waves. Thanks Scott for capturing these moments in time.. Mahalo

Paddled out early with Jesse and caught some fun little NE wind swell that brewed up the last two days. Was a cool 70'f air temp with 10 - 15 knot wind. Fun little lefts rolling thru. Was larger last night. Chris, Scott , Vincent and Paul joined us in the water. Was a fun little session. I swam out and took some pics and video . The water was warmer than the air so it was nice to float around and shoot.. Here is a little vid from this morning.
Music by 'Smash Mouth' doing a Doors tune 'Peace Frog' ..... Enjoy.
