Check out this session at V land!

I always loved his style.

And by coincidence Buttons passed on the same day as
Andy Irons.

RIP Buttons. The guy was 2 years younger than me but inspired the hell out of me...him, Larry Bertlemann and Mark Liddel for sure. But Buttons fluid, relaxed style... I mean the guy would switchfoot in the middle of anything and make it look easy...and stylish....while doing complicated maneuvers is what caught my attention. Then again after he got his life back together again, the guy was friggen ripped; ANOTHER inspiration from him...this time to get my ass in gear and back in some kind of shape. A real talent even in his 50's. Him and Bertlemann were just way ahead of their time.

Drljefe, somehow I missed his passing this past Saturday. Thanks for posting it up

SocialC, that was not originally Adventure Journal but Trans World Surf, issue June 2013. A non-pro surfer in Tasmania at a secret spot, one of those awful slabs like Shipstern's that break over rocks.

^ Thank you Peter! AJ was the first place I saw it... really amazing shot.

I was bummed about Buttons passing as well having read a bit about him recently, and seen him interviewed a couple times, plus my buddy and his wife rented boards from Buttons on a trip to HI and had only positive things to say...

Ahhh, I dream of a dry-hair paddle out to glassy shoulder high peelers. Rights and lefts, no leash making decisions sound, confident. The static smell off the wave, the spring of the board under my bare feet... 6' fish or 10' log, I loved every minute.
Sigh...

Yesterday the whole north shore was closed out so I drove out to Peahi aka Jaws and shot a few photos from the bluff. Most of the local big wave paddle in crew was out. Shane Dorian and Kai Lenny were the only two that I recognized since I spaced out my binoculars. This was arguably the heaviest day paddled in at Jaws so far! Click on for more of the action I captured of that epic session.

It was awesome to sit on the bluff and photograph those same waves!

Recently the best pro and amateur wave sailors in the world gathered at Hookipa Beach Park to compete in the Aloha Classic wave sailing competition. The competition was extremely heavy day after day.
I was invited to compete in the Grand Masters division but thats just not my game these days.
Instead I set up my camera and tripod on the bluff above all the action.
I wound up with so many awesome images that I am overwhelmed by the sheer volume of the file.
I belong to a group called The Kuau Yacht Club. The K.Y.C. is an informal group of sailors that surf and wave sail together almost every day that the conditions are favorable.
We had several of our members competing in the Aloha Classic so I decided to show case my friends from the K.Y.C.
Here are a few select images that I captured of my mates shredding it up in the competition.
