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 http://vimeo.com/39451660
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.
