This year's China's contest there was no elimination and you surf 3 rounds and the top 4 makes it to the final. I ended up missing the cut. I needed a better 3rd round but I didn't catch the right waves. Here is one of the better waves but Kai dropped in on me... I don't know whats wrong with him but before I caught this wave he told me "Don't go or else I'll break your leg!" What kind of Pro says that?! I was even more surprised when he actually tried to break my leg! Good thing I drink plenty of milk!
The PRO division was horrible but atleast the Team Challenge was fun! I was on team Drift Surf with Derek, Atsushi and Kaito. Im the only real longboarder but we won!!! Some of the other teams were stacked like Kekoa's and Scotty Fong's team but we came in first place!
Here is team Oyaji's. How could they call themselves Team Sushi without me on it! hahaha!
Kaito also won the Boys division. Check out his top 2 waves.

Today I got a phone call from a guy saying I won 2.5 million dollars and a 2009 BMW! (Yeah Right....) The guy kept on asking "How do you feel?" And I kept on saying I feel good if its true... When he asked me what my credit card was I told him I don't have one. I think he was bummed! Hahaha! Just hang up on them if they ever call you!
Today the waves have dropped off from yesterday. If you wait a while there is still some leftover 2 foot sets but right now the high tide is starting to kill it. Should have plenty of waves starting tommorrow!
Took Kelly to her yearly checkup yesterday. She weighed 64 pounds.

Here is some pics of Kaito's and Weston's Big Oio. The top picture is Kaito's 2 Oio. Actually Kaito only caught One in a half because Kylen gave him Kaito his pole when he got a bite cause he felt sorry for Kaito since he was the only one that never caught a fish yet. HAAAAAHAHHAHA! But at the end Kaito got a bite and it made his day. Weston caught the biggest one at almost 7 pounds.

Surfed with Takako this morning and we both rode the Akule model. The waves were a little choppy but still get some sets. Maybe 3 feet on the sets if you wait a while.
This is one thing I miss about Japan. The Grinds! Check it out. THe table has everything from sushi to curry to tonkatsu! THis is why I come back 8 pounds heavier! Hahaha.

Today the waves were small again so I helped out at the Surf shop that i stay at. In the afternoon I was Skyping with Takako and Kaito.
Here`s Kaito with one of his Donkey kong Faces. Dosen`t he look exactly like Donkey Kong?!
The only thing good about Japan is the Food! Here is another day of eating Good Sushi. You can`t go wrong when each plate is only $1!

This is one of my favorite things to eat at Sukiya. Gyu don with curry rice and miso soup! The best part is that the food comes really fast (way faster than rainbows) and its cheap and good!
Here`s one of the Kaiten sushi we went to during the shizunami trip. Here`s Jason Suzuki grinding! Look how much he ate! Hahahha! Nah I helped him eat some of those.
Check out my japanese blog for more pics.
