Merry X-mas!


Headed down to the west side today. Does anybody recognize this surfer?



I past by the Honolulu City Lights the other night and it was really nice.


Checked out Tracks but it was super crowded so we ended up surfing crowded Pokai Bay. Hahah.

Da Moke wanted to couch potato all day but somehow managed him to get off the couch and come with me and Tako to the Westside. Looks like he just woke up in this pic. Hahah.

HIO


My brother had the HIO contest today at Haleiwa. We went down to check it out and the waves were not that good. There was some size but it was a little to North for Haleiwa. Can you see Kaito about to get worked on this set?

Here is a picture of Kaito I took on my digital camera. Not bad for a digi camera.

Christmas is almost here!

Monday, December 21, 2009

Stay at the contest at haleiwa. The waves are solid 6ft and they are running the boys division and the girls. Wrong swell direction so not that good.

New Fin!


I got my own fin model! It comes in 3 different sizes 6, 6.5, 7. I just want to thank Island Fin Design and Basil for helping me out!

Surfed Chuns today. It was 4 feet and not that crowded. The weird thing was that Pidleys was super crowded! The sand on the beach was flat and smooth. Must be that huge Eddie swell that caused the sand to become so flat.

Can't Sleep

Yesterday when I tried to go to sleep my brother was snoring like this. 15 years old and already snores this loud. That isn't good...

Get waves!!

The waves were good today on the South Shore. A little inconsistent but it was 3 feet on the sets. North winds blowing so it was straight offshore.

Had a mean Thanksgiving dinner at Mitsu House. We never ate Turkey but we had other good stuff.

After we ate we cruised inside Mitsu house watching some surf videos and talking stories. Here is Takako and Hana cruising. And in the back are the two gamers Kaito and Hoku. They were playing a fishing game on the I phone the whole night!

Today I stopped by at the surf sample sale at Rainbow drive in. There was all kinds of stuff from many companies.

Japanese 307

Last week in my Japanese Class we were supposed to sing the song 'Oh my Darling' Japan 307 style. Here are the lyrics.
Oh my darling, Oh my darling, Te is such a crazy form
み、に、び、 are changed to んで 
い、ち、り to って
き to いて、し to して
Now I Know my te-form. 

Check out the teacher recording our grades!! So if you thought High School was hard just wait till you go to college! They grade you on your singing. Hahahah!

Another Choice we had was to sing 'Oh Christmas Tree' Japanese 307 style. The video above is the teacher singing this song. Here are the lyrics.
Oh, む、ぬ、ぶ、Oh, む、ぬ、ぶ
む、ぬ、ぶ、 to んで!
Oh, う、つ、る、Oh,う、つ、る
う、つ、る、 to って!
く to いて、ぐ to いで、 す To して、 and きて、して
Oh, む、ぬ、ぶ、Oh, む、ぬ、ぶ
む、ぬ、ぶ、 to んで!

Unfortunately I didn't get a video of myself singing it. The reason is that when I showed up to class the teacher says 'Lets get started with our singing. Does anybody want to volunteer to go first?' Of course NO ONE volunteered. Then the teacher says 'じゃ Genkiさん どうぞ!’ Which means Go ahead Genki. I responded with a 'Are you serious?!' and she said yes. So as you can see I had no time setting my camera to video myself. Hahaha.
By the way, I had to do a 2 times because I got the lyrics wrong on my last sentence!!! What a embarrassing day!  

Concession Video

Here is some video of today's waves at Concession. It was about 2 feet but breaking all over the place. Atleast there was some waves.

South Swell

Came up a little overnight. It was solid 2 feet today with windy conditions. Looks like the swell is going to peak tmrw but don't expect it to get that big.

2012


I went to go watch 2012 this weekend and the theatre was super crowded. The movie was ok. The graphics were cool but some of the parts was unrealistic. Do you believe that the world is going end on 12/21/12?

Reef Hawaiian pro

The Reef Hawaiian pro started today in 2 to 3 foot surf at Haleiwa. Will the contest live up to last year's final day?

Here is last year's winner Michel Bourez. Too bad he lost out early today...

2018 World Champion


That's a hefty statement. That's a lot of pressure on him. Only time will tell...

Look how crowded lighthouse was today! Crazy!

Surfed D head today and it was solid 2 feet. I finished school at 5 so by the time I got out there it was dark already. Caught 8 waves today. Good enough for me.

Furikake Ahi Katsu

I ate at Fresh Catch for lunch and it was mean! If you haven't gone there you better get there!

Concession


The last couple days we had a nice south swell in town. The waves were solid 3 feet and really fun. Today it was super clean with the north winds but it was a little smaller than yesterday. Looks like another south swell next week. Dosen't look as big as this past one but its better than nothing.

Friday, November 6, 2009

Ewa

Yesterday I went surfing Ewa with Mitsu and Tako. The waves were 2 feet and nobody was out so it was pretty fun. We tried to get some water footage but it was harder than we thought. Haha.

Did anybody see this? They kind of zoomed in on his face! Hahaha!

Lani



Shortboarde Lani's yesterday and it was pretty fun. 3-5ft solid and the current was strong. I felt like I was paddling forever on a shortboard. I videoed Kaito and Brice for a little while but it was impossible to find them. Some how I got luck and I videoed the right person. Haha.

Hurricane Neki swell


Here is concessions today. We had some swell from the Hurricane so it was pretty fun. The swell was super west so the rights were long.

Here is the Garlic Chicken plate from Mitsu Ken! Super good!

Here is the North Shore yesterday. It was epic for a little while then it got onshore. Too bad it didn't stay this way.

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

Rainy day


Here is the waves at concession today. It was actually better than it looks. It was about 2 feet and a little bumpy but wasn't nearly as crowded as the past few days.

I saw my brother's new schedule for the year and he basically has 3 day weekends every weekend! Thats crazy! They need to do something about the furlough fridays!
I wish UH had those. Maybe the professors at UH could go on strike... Hahaha!

TS Neki


So far it dosen't look like TS Neki is going to come close to Hawaii. Should become a hurricane any moment thou.

Sunday, October 18, 2009

fun waves


Here is a pic of courts yesterday. It was solid 3 feet with some solid 4 foot sets when it did come in. Dosen't look that good in this pic but the wind direction got better in the afternoon and it was fun.

After surfing some good waves we ended the day with some Karaoke. I can't sing but at least I tried. Haha! Here is Hoku and Takako singing.

Mokes


Surfed Mokes this morning and the waves were 3 feet on the sets but slowly dropping. Town is still small but rideable. SHould have some solid waves this weekend in town but I bet everyone is goin to be on it.

Chuns


Surfed ChunsReef today and the waves were 2-4 feet on the sets. It didn't look to good from the beach but when I got out there it was lining up pretty good and it was fun. I saw Ned and Koa out there too. Today for the first half of my session I rode my longboard and the second half I shortboarded with Brice. Hopefully there's still some waves tmrw. Pretty good south swell this weekend!

Monday, October 12, 2009

Sisters


Lately I haven't been surfing too much. I surfed Mokes on saturaday morning and it was really fun but that's about it. I've been hangin around with Takako and her sister from Japan Hiroko. We went hiking Makapuu yesterday which felt really good because the trades are back. But not for long... We might get variables may starting wednesday, thursday. And Some soouth swells heading our way too this weekend. Should be a fun week of surf!
