Stand-up Paddle (SUP ) in Okinawa as we wait for typhoon waves.

I decided to go for a rip n’ dip on the SUP at a friendly little spot on the east side of Okinawa. Some fun little waves.

When I got back to the car a friend messaged me that a typhoon is approaching Okinawa this week and it made it have a hope again as this spring and beginning of summer as been a real wave draught. Let’s hope this turns into something good and produces some fun waves to surf.

Jun – Thank you for the clips!

Jun put together a few clips of me surfing out front in Okinawa. Here and there Jun breaks out the camera and shoots every surfer out there on the seawall and he had a few clips of me he was stashing and surprised me with this edit. I appreciate it very much. You can check out all of his videos on his Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/SURF2011OKINAWA

North Swell – Okinawa West Side Spots!

If you lurk on Magic Seaweed’s predictions for the week and see 6+feet/1.5 – 2.0+meter wave size with Northern directions you are going to find all of my favorite spots to surf on the West Side of Okinawa light up. I took some video at couple spots and I hope you like it! – Dave

 

No Waves & Raining – No Problem

The waves in Okinawa often suck and although all the pretty tourist flyers for Okinawa are beautiful sunny days it often rains. When this happens I don’t worry, we headed to the skatepark under the bridge in Haebaru. Do you want directions to that skatepark: Click Here

Rob Mallon aka No Limit Soldier

Rob is a big guy but don’t under estimate his skill level. This trick was my idea to start trying and right away Rob took over and 5 min. later he pulled this stylish ‘ baby blunt slide ‘ to fakie the Ginowan Skate Park.

Your move! @ebwinslow no limits! @okirob #skateboarding #autumn? #nolimits #nanananana

All Day – Ginowan Skate Park

Rob and I shook off all the cobwebs from our old bones. We ripped a few, we shredded a few and then drank a few brewskies to wisk away the pain of skateboarding when you are a grown man. Enjoy!

秋は最高です。#skateboarding #autumn? #migos
