The Non-Interference

Zeke gets an interference, then it gets reversed. Everything, seemingly, is right in the world, except for the fact that apparently the judges have a different, inferior feed than we do? Weird, right?

MUST-SEE MOMENT

Matt Meola’s mind-bending, game-changing surf edit, “Numb”. Everyone talks about the airs, but it’s not just airs, the turns (check the one at the 3:00 mark), and the “Clay-backs” are all insane. And let’s not forget that the dude charges Jaws. MUST SEE!

The state lawmakers, chaired by Scott Nishimoto, who aim eliminate protection to Hawaii state lifeguards from frivolous lawsuits.

RepostBy @sunnygarcia: “HELP PROTECT OUR LIFEGUARDS A group of personal injury lawyers and lawmakers are misleading the public and some legislators in an effort to make money off of Hawaii’s tax payers from frivolous lawsuits against lifeguards. Each day, the men and women of Ocean Safety lay their lives on the line to save complete strangers no matter the conditions, the risk involved, or the level of danger. These are the faces of just some of the lifeguards around the state of Hawaii that risk their lives each day to protect you. Please call or email Scott Nishimoto 808-586-8515 repnishimoto@Capitol.hawaii.gov, Joy San Buenaventura 808-586-6530 repsanbuenaventura@Capitol.hawaii.gov, Sylvia Luke 808-586-6200  repluke@Capitol.hawaii.gov, Jill Tokuda 808-587-7215 sentokuda@capitol.hawaii.gov to urge them to support Senate Bill 562 SD1 in support of limited liability protection for Hawaii’s Ocean Safety Lifeguards and to end the sunset clause to make this permanent.

160 – Cyrus Sutton: Island Earth

Play

In today’s episode David chats with professional surfer turned filmmaker Cyrus Sutton about his new film “Island Earth”. The film takes a candid look at the agricultural industry in Hawaii and  follows a young scientist’s struggle for truth between science and tradition as he enters an industry that many feel is threatening his homeland. Cyrus shares lessons from the film and how world travel and a decade of living in a van has positioned him to venture into filmmaking outside the world of surfing.
