An Old Favorite Back Up and Running Again

We had a friend in town and decided to have sushi!!!  And best of all, our old favorite spot is back up and running again - California Beach Rockin Sushi!!!

Thanks for having dinner with us Dan-O!!!

Marlon and I went surfing at White Plains Friday and Saturday evening.  Packing up Saturday, I noticed he had a few breaks in the bottom of his board.  What a fine opportunity to teach him how to fix a ding!

We opted to use UV Cure Polyester resin instead of epoxy (faster).

After prepping, we moved into the dark garage to place the resin.

All fixed!  He opted to not sand the bumps down (unlike me who would have spent an inordinate amount of time trying to feather in the repair - darn OCD).

Got a Ration of S4!t for My Remo Necklace

Nevermind the fact that I'm trying to dial in a setup so everyone else can benefit - the GoPro 5 remote worn around the neck seems to be very carefree and reliable (less water interaction???).  But apparently the Remo around my neck is disconcerting to my family (mostly La and Noe, but it even threw Marlon for a bit).

I'll stick on some leash plugs onto our boards and I'll start putting this on Marlon's board too.  

Sad Day - Aloha Kua Aina Kapolei

One of our favorite sandwich shops is closing today.

We enjoyed our last burgers and fries here - we loved going to this location because it was way closer than the Haleiwa one, and because it was rarely crowded (unlike the Haleiwa shop which is always crowded).

We'll miss this shop!!!  Here is a picture of the original shop up in Haleiwa - this place was closed after a fire several years back - but they reopened in a new building down the road.  I'm glad that that location isn't likely to close down anytime during this century (way too many tourists emptying their pockets there).  But I lament that the Honolulu and now the Kapolei shops didn't have the local community support to keep them viable.

Diamond Head

It's been a while since I've surfed here...

Lots has changed about this place, but the waves are still the same

Suction Cup GoPro Mount

From yesterday morning's dawn patrol

The jump in quality of pictures and videos from the Hero 3+ Black to the Hero 5 Black is huge!  I like the new cameras!!!
