The 2014 Molokai to Oahu was a great event. We went over to Molokai on our boat three days before the event. It was nice to just relax and take it all in before the grueling 32-mile channel crossing. The night before my mom made her traditional competition meal, I got a good night rest and was ready to go the next morning. We loaded the boat with our provisions and I got ready to go to the start line. I did a little warm-up paddle to make sure I was ready to go and then I lined up on the starting line after the prone paddlers left.

SIC Bullet 12′6″ is Awesome

surfing-with-the-sic-bullet-12-6-sup-race-board-1

It’s been a few years since I first got my version 1 SIC 12′6″. It was the first of the shape that would evolve the Bullet line and I loved it at first lift. I mean first lift because it’s lighter than most of the 10′6″ boards on the market at the time. That’s a big difference because when I look at what to ride from the quiver a lot of time it’s based on what’s easiest to carry for the day. Continue reading ‘SIC Bullet 12′6″ is Awesome’
