Locally owned

Padang Padang, like most world class waves, has a world class crew of guys who grew up surfing there. On this particular day in Bali the swell direction hitting Padang Padang was less then ideal and inconsistent, so when the sets came through the locals made sure to be in position.

Black hole sun

I was riding my bike down to Foodland the other afternoon hungry for some dinner. I had wanted some sushi but was treated to this delicious sunset instead.

Hawaii Loa Ridge Hike

I had heard about this hike for a long time from my room mates. Finally my friend Mark and I ventured out to see what all the hype was about. 6 hours of vertical hiking later Mark and I were met with the most amazing view of Oahu we had ever seen. You could see all of Waimanalo, Hawaii Kai, and Waikiki from a single lookout. This is my favorite photo from our hike. If you are my friend on facebook you can follow Mark's journey Up the Mountain via a photo album I created and narrated.

Rubbing shoulders with the US Navy

Last week my girlfriend and I were invited to a private showing of the U.S.S. Bowfin submarine that is docked at Pearl Harbor. We got all snazzed up, checked out the boat, took a few pictures, and best of all got fed like royalty while Merrill Lynch picked up the bill. Thanks for the free food, the steak was delicious. Keep on investing!
