At least he rests today, I hope.

I am under the impression that the four leading canoes are filled with (basically) professional Tahitians paddlers.

Laupahoehoe to Keokea today, Keokea to Kawaihae tomorrow and Kawaihae to Kona on Friday, $50K purse, 19 teams I believe and Full On Bitchin!

Last year's race
Pretty freakin cool! Scary looking but cool.

Funnily enough living in this place has showed me my one big fear. It's It's being on a boat on the open ocean. Great fear to have living on an island right? I guess I'm a mountain man at heart. I spend a ton of time all over Mauna Kea here.
