""F@ck Yeah Zeke" taco Tuesday! So stoked for you @zekelau! Years of waking up at 4:30am to train while other guys are still sleeping paying off! Go #townie! Haha. (Way too many people so tag yourselves.) "
"@kylenyamakawa got his car broken into at Diamond Head this morning. He got his green Oakley backpack, wallet, iPhone, school books and notes, etc. Kylen is working hard (multiple jobs), paying for his college education while surfing competitively. If you see anyone suspicious with Kylen's stuff please let the police know. Or you can beat the crap out of the guy for street justice. (Make sure it's the right guy first tho. Haha)"
"Some how we still had some waves in town today. Ended up surfing till dark with these girls and a boy. @emilay__ @surfer_julie @surferchickrulz @surf_gabbi @surferleila @hapasurferjake and Sara Wakita. "
"People have been asking me where I've been. Well, I've been working on my new used car. Just got my exhaust system done at @esh_town_shop. The guys there worked their magic and now I'm a step closer to this #e30 to be my daily driver! Thanks ESH and @rplzp! Go there if you ever need exhaust work done! "
"I would've stole it if it fit in my pocket... But it was too big. Thanks for having me over at your place @rissmoore10!! Love how you haven't changed at all even with a couple of world titles. Still the same sweet and humble girl I've always known and loved. "
"So stoked I got to be there for Olivia and Maya's contest debut!! Thanks @mace_mull @mrsrockypoint @wongwayz @sasa_bear01 for letting me be part of this awesome day! Also thank you #NorthShoreMenehuneContest for an amazing event!"
"Another reason why I love @rissmoore10! She had a bbq for everyone at her home break, kewalos, this evening to thank them for their support. Girls got to hangout and talk to Carissa all evening. What other world champ in any sports do that?!?!"
"@rissmoore10, the champ, got a puppy. Yes Carissa, I'd love to watch your "black dog" while you're traveling! I'll take great care of him... Give him shoyu bath and all. BBQ at my house all my Asian friends! Haha jk... Or am I?!?!?"
So here it is. I figured I should do this so people can see what is up with my life.
I'm a surf photographer here in Hawaii and also the owner of Novus Swell.
When I started shooting surfing, i realized i was floting around right next to other photogs trying to capture all the pros. So I figured why not shoot all the groms who are not getting enough exposures in the industry. So now i mostly shoot Hawaii's grom surfers.
After a while, i realized there are not much market for shots of groms... Specially Hawaii kids since all the big surf companies are in California.
So instead of convincing big surf companies that they should be using Hawaii kids for their ads and promotions (which would've been a full time job on it's own), i started Novus Swell.
Novus Swell features Hawaii's grom surfers. We come up with a new video webisode every Tuesday showcasing Hawaii's groms.
