today was one of the best days. woke up to the sun, hopped on my scooter, and headed to ehukai beach park to watch the first day of the pipemasters, only the biggest professional surf competition all year. Seeing it all live instead of from a live feed on a computer screen felt like a dream. Some highlights from the day: Seeing my fav, rob machado ( he isn’t in competitions all that often anymore, so it was pretty lucky). And seeing dusty payne vs mick fanning, one of the closest heats i have ever seen- dusty ended up beating mick and thus saving his spot on the tour next season and at the same time stripping fanning of the potential to win a triple crown victory. so intense!
after the competition ended, the surfing of course continued and with it one of the most beautiful sunsets of my life. literally spent ALL day on the beach. loved it.
ended with some friends and drinks by the campfire, then getting washed away while stargazing.
