Mavericks Festival, the Expendables, and Sunshine

2 Apr

This past Saturday, Mavericks held an event to honor the massive wave event that usually has already happened by this time of year.  However, they could not ever lock down a day to get the surfers to charge for a contest.  There were still surfers who I’m sure were out there catching waves this past winter but there wasn’t an actual contest held.  Surprisingly, we had some sun and a nice day of music and friends.  It was down pouring everywhere else but somehow along the Hwy1 coast line, we had some of the most beautiful weather.

Kite boarders everywhere!

The Expendables playing.

This is just hilarious.

Little kids just loving the music : )

Cute gamers 🙂

GoPro was also there giving out a few GoPros!  Pretty awesome.

Female Mavericks surfer!

They had a skate set up, too!

I love my friends.

Reef Hawaiian Pro on the North Shore

27 Nov

While in Hawaii, there was a huge series of surf contests happening on the famed North Shore.  I’ve always wanted to see one but the swell never seemed to work in my favor of days that I could make it.  It was really cool to see!  The water can be completely flat one minute and then come to life with huge swells the next.  Here are a few of my photos from the Reef Hawaiian Pro last week.

Here’s the next heat paddling out!

Next week will be a week of Hawaii posts since I have so many photos from the trip and didn’t share any last week 🙂
