Being grateful for this beautiful corner of the world is easy to do. Some times though it’s easy to take it for granted. But just yesterday as I was surfing a rather stormy Chun’s Reef with a super duper friend of mine, I realized that the North Shore of Oahu on a “bad day” is better then the best day any where else! OK, so I’ve lived out here so long and home is home, but still, getting to jump in the water for a quick surf session every day or catching a few waves at giant Pipeline with the best surfers in the world, well who gets to do that? And the sunsets out here, world class especially when viewed from the line up or surf zone. I’ve also fallen in love with all the green sea turtles. The Hawaiian name is Honu, but I named them all Nimo. Yes life on the North Shore is as close to perfect as it gets.
