Smiles, sharing, and more smiles... these words have been crossing my mind as I reflect back on a recent trip I was fortunate to take to the mainland (U.S.A) from home on Oahu. Unsure of what the stand up paddle experience would be like away from Hawaii, I was taken in by some fellow sup surfers who proved to me that the stoke is strong on all shores of this giant salt water lake we call the ocean. A huge mahalo again to Chris, Jericho, Shawn Maxfield, and all the others for making the trip unreal... 11 mile flat water race at Redondo Beach, lake paddling in Southern Utah, hiking the narrows at Zions National Park, road trip madness, camping in the Sequoias, breakfast at Denny's in the desert, fun surf in Orange County, trading waves with Ron House and Gerry Lopez, spending time with Steve Boehne at Infinity and touring his shaping bay, Family Fun day with many of the original Blackies Surf Club thanks to Shawn Maxfield, and experiencing first hand both flat water and West Coast wave riding stoke! Thanks again to everyone else I met along the way. I truly had a blast. It was great to experience some of that West Coast Stoke. It really is the people that brings greatness to this awesome sport of stand up paddling.
