For those of you that follow my Twitter, you may already be aware that I am over in Hawaii. I generally try to get one last surf trip in before the heavy winter months are upon us (finger’s crossed for a good one). It goes without saying, I’m incredibly lucky to have this be considered my “off-season training,” and it turns out I’m not the only one… Pep Fujas is accompanying me, and we’ve spotted other ski stars such as Reggie Crist, and photog Adam Clark enjoying the warm Hawaiian waters.

So far we haven’t seen much of a swell, but it’s about to get DEADLY (photo below). Although, we have been rather fortunate in having strong East trade’s blowing and making quite enjoyable waves. In addition, Pep is the proud new owner of a Cannon 7D and has taken a number of sick shots thus far. As I mentioned above with the DEADLY quote… NOAA is forecasting 18 foot Hawaiian surf on the Horizon, so I’m guessing we will be doing a lot more photo taking then surfing. Don’t get me wrong, we’d love to be out there surfing, but I think we may lack the certain skills and mind set needed for 40 foot faces. Can’t wait to see it though.

Pollard showed up and painted a tree real quick.

There we go. Vino.. Day well spent.

Hoping to still be here after Tuesday. Wish us luck!

This past weekend in Hollywood was a spectacle to say the least. The Ski Channel premiered their feature film ‘The Story.’ I was genuinely shocked with the turn out and the overall experience of the whole thing. I am new to the Hollywood scene, but they made us feel as if we were A-list Hollywood celeb’s, and I didn’t even have to win Dancing With The Stars to get there… Nevertheless,The Ski Channel did an incredible job, not only with the production quality, but with the entire event. The premier took place at Mann’s Chinese Theater, followed by a classy after party in the Highlands. I highly recommend seeing the movie for yourself. It’s very inspirational, has some sick skiing/ travel/ mountaineering, and has a very “real” vibe to it. You will not leave disappointed.
