What an exciting year for SUP stand up paddling. I just wanted to wish everyone a very Mele Kalikimaka (Merry Christmas) and Hau’oli Makahiki Hou (Happy New Year). The Christmas spirit is definitely here.
My brother and I did a short downwinder this morning and were blessed with great wind. When we were done we loaded the boards on his car. At that point we realized that I forgot to put straps in his car and just as we were wondering what we should do, Herbie Titcomb pulled up in his yellow VW Bug on his way out of Kaimana Beach and stopped to talk story with us. Once he realized we had no straps he let us borrow his. What a cool guy and what a cool sport that brings us all together.
Thanks Herbie! You saved us today.
