Honolua Bay saved from development - crispy pointbreaks prevail

The state of Hawaii has allocated $20 million of their budget to purchase 280 acres of land surrounding Maui’s famed Honolua Bay from the Maui Land and Pineapple Company. Once finalized, the state will designate Honolua as a state park. The decision was met with enthusiastic cries of support by members of the Save Honolua Coalition, a group that has been pressuring the state to protect the land from a series of proposed developments, including a golf course and a series of luxury homes.

Is Hainan China the new surf city?

The World Surf Cities Network (WSCN)—a fledgling, tourism-focused organization based in Spain—is flirting with the idea of adding Hainan, a tropical island province off China’s south coast, to its list of world-class surf destinations. The other nine members are frothing, wave-stoked surf cultures such as the Gold Coast, Durban, and Hossegor. But what about Hainan? Well, sure, a handful of low-key pro events have been held there over the last few years, but not only is it off the radar of most surf trippers, it doesn’t even support a significant local surfing population.

Tom Blake/Thomas Rogers Co. paddleboard from the late 1930s

Any Tom Blake Model is a must-have, but here without question is one of the finest we've ever seen. Constructed from lovely Philippine mahogany ( deck and bottom) with redwood rails and sealed with covered screws, this beauty is in original condition. The Thomas Rogers Company of Venice had the license to build Blake paddleboards from 1932 to 1939. This model was made during the end of their production as evidenced by use of Blake's "life-ring" brass drain plug. Quite simply the top of it's class. pre-auction estimate $10K- $15K...check out the video
