Surfed Mokes this past weekend and it was going off! It was like 3 feet and perfect conditions on sunday. Saturday the wind was on it but on sunday it was perfect. On sunday I got to try one of my new boards and it works awesome! Definitely one of the best days of the year. And the best part was that it was only me and Mika out. It was her first time surfing country so she was kind of scared but she did great. I heard it was raining all day in town but in the country it was just cloudy. Trades are coming back tommorrow so no more mokes for a while.

This past week I went to Miyazaki for the last events of the JPSA tour. I had a lot of fun in Miyazaki but my contest results were pretty junk. I got 2nd in one contest but I lost early in the other. With 10 seconds left I had one last chance to make the heat but when I was setting up for my last manuever I digged a rail. I still made the manuever but I guess they were actually paying attention so they saw my rails dig. Haha. Now im back in school and I have plenty of work to catch up. I finally got my midterm grades for Math and CHem. I got an A in Chem and a 65 out of 100 on my math. But the average grade for the Math test was like a 55 so with the class curve I got a B on my midterm. Stoked! I have one more midterm left and I take it on friday so I can finally rest this weekend. Looks like country might be good this weekend. Not too big and the trades should be light...

I had the last event for the Steinlager Shaka Series at Straightouts today. The waves were kind of weak but it was perfect for nose riding. It was about 1.5 feet with semi clean conditions. I ended up making the finals and I got 2nd place. Kai Sallas ended up winning and Rusty was in 3rd, and Erza in 4th. This year hasn't been a great year for me so I was happy just to make it to the final.
After the final I watched the ASP contest in Miyazaki on the internet. It was really cool because Kekoa won the longboard and Shibatz got 2nd in the shortboard and even made the semi's for the longboard! All of this was going on while Nick Mita was commentating so it was super funny. Also I just wanted to say thanks to Fa9 and 88 tees for giving me bunch of new t-shirts today. Gav even gave me some sick UH t-shirts. Thanks Everybody!
Midterms coming up this week so Im really busy. Also Im leaving for Japan on wednesday to compete in the final 2 events for the JPSA. Hopefully I can keep the ball rolling... like UH! They won their game against LA Tech today and next week they are up against an undefeated team Boise State. Its going to be a really tough game but hopefully they won't get smashed.

Today was my parents 20 year anniversary! I can't believe they have been married for 20 years! Thats pretty long! We ended up going to Genki Sushi. HAHA. IT was my first time going to Genki Sushi since I came back from Japan. After eating really good sushi in Japan the Hawaii Genki Sushi didnt taste as good... I guess if you want to eat real sushi you have to go Japan! Other than that, I surfed D-head today and the waves were ok. It was solid 2 feet on the sets and not that crowded.
