Mixed novice paddling Wednesday afternoon we went from the launch to the Ala Wai buoy then intervals to the wind sock. I was surprised we continued to the Diamond Head buoy, well almost. The crew paddled a total of 6.6 miles in an hour and 30 minutes with lots of breaks in between.
Took Button and Mushu on a walk at Hunakai Beach Thursday morning. At one point Button must have been at least 20-25 yards ahead, Mushu is slow but he did the whole mile and a half walk by himself.
I walked/ran Distance: 4.27mi, time: 01:00:09, pace: 14:05min/mi, speed: 4.26mi/h.
Here I am at the western end of the Ala Wai and about 2 miles away from the beginning of my walk/run.
There’s nothing like paddling a 400 pound canoe and 800+ pounds of men into a wave no matter what size it is. That’s always the best part of practice for me after paddling 6+ miles, the 10 second ride makes it all worth the hard work I’ve put in for the last hour. I always feel so connected to this place I call home when I’m playing in the ocean.

Good Friday went parasailing with the fam. I was so worried about getting seasick sitting on the boat that I thought I wasn’t going to enjoy myself. I took the precaution of taking a motion sickness pill and I think it helped me. I had a great time on the water and the parasailing was awesome not scary at all, it was so very peaceful in the air and the scenery cannot be beat. I’m glad the wifey put this together.
If I remember I’ll post a photo of my walk this Good Friday. I walked Distance: 1.51mi, time: 43:00, pace: 28:26min/mi, speed: 2.11mi/h.
