New webisode: Sticky Bumps Day Glo wax Review

I just uploaded a new webisode! I got these Sticky Bumps DayGlo Wax a while ago and kept on forgetting to review them... (Sorry Sticky Bumps!) So I brought the DayGlo waxes with me to the beach and had some kids try them out!

DayGlo Wax are all natural formula (using soy) and come in 7 different colors! Go to for more info!

Going home.

For some reason I always get to te airport super late. This time I
got here 35min before the flight and some how I talked my way into
having a curbside guy check in my bags.

It was too close to missing my flight. I need to start showing up to
the airport earlier!

Well, so I didn't miss my flight so I'll see you all back in Hawaii!

Off to Cali.

That Alaskan air plane is blocking my plane. Ha ha. See you all in Cali.

MagicSeaWeed Surf Report website!

I ran into this surf report website call and this site is awesome. You can check the surf report on every location you can think of in the WORLD!

when i say the world, i mean the world! You can even check the report on Great Lakes, Alaska, even Mediterranean Sea! And the amazing thing is, they are really accurate.

I've been talking to the editor of the site, Ed, and he has told me their forecast directors are working on 16 day forecasts! Imagine that, no more planning that dream surf trip and the waves being flat. That's just amazing.

Also, this site got everything else i want to check out. Photos, videos, magazine, etc.

so if you are checking your local spots, planning a trip to Great Lakes (for some crazy reason...) or want to check out some cool photos, stories, and videos, check these guys out!
