Last week we decided to pack up the bags and head over to Tahiti for what looked like a solid 8 foot swell. Packing our boards with overly excited conversations of standing in 8 foot tubes, Conner and I got the final call that we were on the 4:30 pm Air Tahiti Nui flight to Papeete, Tahiti with Beau Foster, Luke Davis, Nick Rozsa, Zak Noyle, Janna Irons from Surfer Mag, and Shea Perkins from Reef. We were going to stay at Raimana’s house for a full week in seek of massive barrels.

International Surfing Day Beach Clean Up is coming up Sunday and beyond


To celebrate International Surfing Day Surfrider Oahu, Sustainable Coastlines, Kokua Hawaii Foundation,Method Cleaning Products, Barefoot Wines and Plastic Free Hawaii will be teaming up to host two clean ups along with a group surf on the actual International Surfing Day.

The Town clean up will be at Diamond Head on Sunday June 17th. We will be meeting at the main (newly renovated) trail at 9:30AM. After the clean up we will be treated to live music and food at Tikis Bar and Grill just down the street in Waikiki.

In the middle of the week (Wednesday June 20) is actual International Surfing Day. We will be figuring out the best spot to go, depending on the amount of people and waves, for a group surf and then hopefully continue the celebration at a venue close to where we surf.

   

The wave is 15' local scale and absolutely perfect for Dane Gadauskus' drop of the day

Day 4 is ON for rounda 3-4...We've moved now at Restaurants which is 3-6' and running up to 2 football fields with 15 second barrels.

Cloud Break is a bit funky at 6-10'. Everyone is still buzzing and talking about Friday's amazing waves and surfers charging 10-15' SSW (15-25' faces).

Volcom could not have jumped back in at a better time. This is good Karma. Bringin' it back to Fiji. AI is pumping his fist to the sky.

Click in for the EPIC DAY in surf history. More vid to come and more minds to blow.
