Honolulu Weekend Update | Chinatown

Chinatown Honolulu is where all the action is this weekend.
Shimmer & Lace party is at Next Door on Hotel St. Friday night. Organik is a sponsor and we're giving away guys and girls sustainable clothing. There will be lots of peeps and dancing at this NYC replica club. Cover is waived if you sign up for Lei Chic.

Formula blog launch party is Saturday night at Manifest directly across the street from Next Door. Live mannequins will be showcasing the Organik spring collection throughout the coffee house by day and bar by night. Gift bags with Organik shirts will be given to the first 50 people so don't be late. There will be NO cover for this spectacular event.

Organik Maui Team Rider | Erik F.

Erik Funakoshi, Organik team member on Maui, sent me pics of his recent surf session on the Emerald Isle wearing Organik designer bamboo t-shirts with the Pagoda design on the red shirt in the pics. You'll ditch your rashguard in favor of our bamboo crew neck or v neck t-shirts and you won't get any rash. Best of all, you'll look super styley.

In the clubs or in the water, Organik shirts are versatile. Bamboo is sustainable material that is highly breathable, moisture wicking and smooth as silk.

I love wearing my bamboo v-neck t-shirts during my surf sessions.

We keep ripping!

This one's for the kids. Entry is free to students 17 + under. Here's the catch! You need to have good grades in school, show your report card and bring a notorized letter.

Organik is a sponsor and will have a tent on the beach with stickers and magazine giveaways.

Check out the surf event and stop by and say hello!

Here's a video of Shane surfing a 5'2" quad and ripping the waves apart as usual. Whether it's 2 foot or 40 foot, Shane is one of the best surfers and always shredding.

The Eddie Aikau Invitational | Waimea Bay | Oahu

The Eddie Aikau big wave invitational is for elite few pros who don't fear dropping into 50 foot waves. Lots of factors are needed for the contest to run: 25 ft + waves, conditions, etc. I booked a ticket from Kona to Honolulu on Monday to leave Tuesday AM in hopes to catch the contest scheduled to run between Monday to Wednesday. I chose correctly with an early AM flight straight to the rental car counter and off to the North Shore. With 30,000 attendees, I had to park 2.8 miles away from the scene at Waimea Bay. I walked from Laniakea to meet people at the Bay. Luckily, I found my NJ transplant friends who had the only EZ Up tent on the beach. They camped out overnight and staked their claim at 4 AM to get an amazing view of all the action. The waves were huge and crowd was freakin out when surfers rode massive waves all the way to the beach and pulled into monstrous close-out barrels.

Luckily, I hitched a ride with my camping buddies through bumper to bumper traffic all the way back to my rental car.

Billabong Pipeline Masters | North Shore | Oahu

Thank you Go! Airlines for flying me over to Oahu from da Big Island to catch this stellar event at the infamous Pipeline on da beautiful North Shore. I picked up Brendan and Amy in my rental car the morning of the Pipe Masters finals and scored parking directly across the street from Ehukai Beach Park where all the action was happening.

Congratulations to Aussie Taj Burrow for his win over our favorite east coaster Kelly Slater. Soon after the contest, we jetted over to Haleiwa and surfed uncrowded, overhead rights with ultra clean conditions. We followed that up with mai tais at Haleiwa Joe's. What a fun-filled day with a surf session and cocktails to end a perfect day!
