Another video collage for composed of shots from the extraordinarily lush Hawaiian island of Kaua’i during a ten day visit this last Christmas.

Music by Joe Bagale, called, “Otis McDonald” a title which pays homage to one of my favorite indie musicians, Otis McDonald – which in turn may actually be a pseudonym.

The waves at Narigana

Yesterday, I rented a nine foot longboard at one of maybe a half dozen small surf shops along Narigana Beach. It was cracked in several places but held up surprisingly well in yesterday’s choppy and occasionally violent waves.

After close to a year, it feels fantastic to surf again. And the water temperature and waves here remind me much more of those on Oahu, Hawaii than those along Santa Monica Beach. Not having to wear a wetsuit is pretty sweet.
