My last day in Kauai consisted of a 2 mile walk back to the Kountry Kitchen for another loco moco.   I had to get another one of those things.  Then, i trooped back down to "donkeys" beach to snap some photos.  Later i met up with the brothers cwick down at kealia for the last surf session of the trip.  After a bunch of fun rights and lefts it was on  to Susan's place to see Kai and say goodbye to everyone.  We finished off the night down at Dukes for some beers and some fish and chips.  Going to the airport after that was incredibly sad.  This is the hardest place to leave in the world.  i love the energy i feel here, it truly makes you feel alive in every way that one can feel alive.  I will be back but for now mohalo kauai! Aloha.

Napali coast

The boys and I headed back to polihale this weekend to camp again.  This time around the surf was small and the water was glassy. We packed up two kayaks and two longboards for the four of us to paddle as far up the Napali coast as we could.  We stopped at a few truly private beaches along the way and enjoyed some beverages out there as well.  We got about 2-3 miles up the coast and had to turn back.  it was a killer workout on the board for sure and we were running out of daylight.  The next day we woke up and hit the surf a little bit.  The waves were small but the water was clear, warm and beautiful.  On the way back to the east side we drove up a 15 mile 4,000 foot climb to the top of waimea canyon.  Seventy five percent of the time you can not see the canyon due to clouds and guess what...... it was covered in clouds.  The way i look at it is another excuse to come back to this incredible island

loco moco

This is the BEST way to start a full day of surfing.  This boheamath of a breakfast contains three scoops of rice, two burger patties, two eggs over easy, and smothered in gravy.  Trust me it is twice as good as it sounds and looks. After puting this thing down we were off to Kealia beach for another beautiful day of surf, sun, bar b q, beers, and most importantly great friends. This place is magical and i will cry when i leave.
