Rad to see Artifact and Mexi’s photos last night in Potrero Hill.
A huge turnout represented for the show including
many cute wahines and a few surf celebs.
Ian was in the house.
Traut showed up with stories of his 5 week old baby girl.
Korewin told tall tales of Hurricanes in the Outer Banks.
My friend Sam told some scary stories of violent encounters with locals at Fullers.
I guess he was there one day with Christian and Christian was
nearly knocked off the trail on his way down in some-kind of
violent altercation. Gnarlz.
Artifact probably told the craziest tale though.
He and a friend took a jet-ski out to Mavs on the huge day this week.
It was all foggy and the ocean was monster-sized.
They got out to the lineup and a few guys were dropping bombs.
They couldn’t see land.
Artifact thought he smelled smoke.
Sure enough their jet-ski motor was literally on fire.
It burned a hole through the plastic covering.
The jet-ski stopped working.
The began drifting out to see.
They got off the ski and started swimming in what they thought
was the direction of land.
Eventually a harbor-patrol boat picked them up and towed them back
to the HMB harbor.
They then got onto a boat going out to check out the surf action from
They boat ahead of them (a crabbing boat?) drifted off into the
fog and was never seen again!

Niceness correspondent Kaiser is currently on the North Shore and he sent
a few email dispatches.. which i hope he doesn’t mind me reposting here:
I stepped of my United flight @ 10:00 p.m. last night, bee-lined to the North Shore and feel asleep.
This morning I woke up, went to get coffee (power out) and redirected to McDonalds.
Thus, within 3 hours of ‘awake time’ here on the Pineapple Express, these are the peeps
I saw/spoke to this morning:
1) Danny Wills & Mick Campbell - Behind me in line @ McD’s
- These boys love McD’s. They are both about 5′ 6” at best and I crush them by about
- Mick had like 3-4 egg mcmuffins and went back for a haupia pie (fried & damn good
I might add)
2) Occy + Wife + kids
- As I was leaving McD’s, Occy rolled up. Dude is awesome.
- I threw him a ‘good morning’ and he tossed back a ‘good morning mate, howz the
3) Duncan Campbell - brother of the famous Campbell Bros.
- We talked bonzer design for 20 minutes in his shop.
- These guys are cool ass cats.
4) Kalani Robb
- Another midget, 5′7” maybe, almost gave him a shoulder check coming out of Bonzer
Front - Campbell Bros surf shop.
- He was with a girl that looked 15 at best.
So, thats what I got thus far.
Waves are HUGE and stormy. No surf for me but I’ll be ‘pro-ho’ing’ the rest of
Mid-day Pro-Ho Update:
I just returned from a quick run to Haliewa (took the wife shopping if you can call it that)
and we rolled up to check Pipe/Sunset, etc. Waves are bit and unruly, only Waimea
is really surfable right now out here.
After a quick run along the beach, saw Phil McDonald, some hot chick, and a few other
blocks playing tennis.
In more interesting news, we picked up a Chocolate Haupia pie at Ted’s Bakery and Occy
jumped in line behind me again. That fool is stalking me today.
He laughed when we
both rolled outside into our minivans. Holla to the pops out there!
Occy is my boy - all in a matter of 8 hours!
