Olukai is a brand of slippers owned by my friend Matthew. They do a lot of things for the community.
Yesterday there was the SUP downwind race from Maliko to Kanaha. Randy did a fantastic photo report on this thread of his standupzone forum.
Here's the top 6 ladies of the Elite category won by - surprise surprise - brazilian Andrea Moeller (right).
Here's the guys. The winner was another brazilian Maui resident: Livio Menelao (left). Forgot the name of the Oahu paddler that came in second, third was Dave Kalama (now, that's a real surprise!) who is not in the picture, fourth Connor Baxter.
Brazilians also won the GP contest for the best female hair.
But, and that is a huge surprise, they didn't win the GP bikini contest!
At one point the helicopter hovered upon the ceremony to throw flowers. I was probably the only one in the crowd thinking:"what an unnecessary way of polluting"...
The result was undoubtedly picturesque, but again... really necessary?
The thing is that EVERYTHING we do pollutes. This blog pollutes because it's made by me using a computer and is read by you using a computer.
As you can see from the generator behind him, even the lovely melodies sung by John Cruz were polluting.
In order not to pollute, we should go back at doing only things using stuff that is available "as is" in nature. Things like this.
The young hula dancers were extremely cute.
Multi hull canoe in action.
John Cruz feeling it.
And playing it.
Now, let's have a look at this week's content of my po box.
ALL you see is unsolicited, unnecessary and polluting marketing shit.
Even a bloody plastic bag! In my po box!!! That's too much.
I have to find a way of not making that happen. Anyone out there knows how? I'm talking about the bulk mail that is not addressed to my name, but to the generic po box holders. I'll talk to the post office, but in the meantime post suggestions if you have any. Thanks.
