Turkey Day, Double the Pounds & Triple the Crown.

So I know I’m a week late but you have to cut me some slack… I was full.  Thanksgiving weekend was great, I hope you all enjoyed it too! I had a phenomenal dinner pack full of turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans, crescents, stuffing, and a crazy oatmeal crumb cake type thing! Kimmy made it and it went great with ice cream. We prepped, we watched terrible football games (the Lions really need to go), we ate, and just like every other year we fell asleep trying to watch Elf.


The rest of the weekend was made up of a few surf sessions at Diamond Head and watching the Giants pummel the Redskins. The north swell was huge so we enjoyed the shoulder and head high waves at the windward side. As for the North Shore, my buddy Jack and I decided to check out the rainy, stormy, and windy day at the Triple Crown. Despite the chilling 75 degree temperature (ha) and the wet conditions it was good fun. The waves were peaking at around 10ft (Hawaiian) but because of the wind there were a lot of close outs. We caught some great sets from a few Brazilian surfers going against a few of our own locals. 


I haven’t been to a major tournament before so it was fun just being up there during all the madness. It’s cool being around so many people stoked on surfing at the same time. From 70 something year old women to 4 year old kids, everyone was cheering on the surfers while getting soaked in the storm. Although we had to catch the end via the web, on Wednesday December 4th, CJ Hobgood took the crown, congrats!

  1. Thanksgiving dinner looks great! Where is the picture of the cake? 😛

  2. bodacious new stoke, bah!

  3. You look cold, Dan. Do you think 70 degree weather is freezing cold? If you do, then congratulations, you’re local. LOL! 🙂

  4. Can you believe it!? It took just over a year! Now I really am in trouble as I’m heading to New York for the holidays. If it snows I may have to invest into one of those Antarctica space suits. Wish me luck!
