If you follow the SUP race scene here in Hawaii, there’s a guy that is a fixture at most of the races. His name is Ed Wheeler and he’s an all around nice guy. Ed and I were at the North Shore Paddle Challenge at Turtle Bay Resort in October 2011. I was fighting bronchitis/walking pneumonia so I was limited to taking photos and Ed just got back from a Tahiti trip and was taking it easy. The waves were good so in between the surf heats, he went surfing with Robert Stehlik and I got these shots. I also included a few from the Duke’s OceanFest in August.
