Malia Manuel is a fourteen year-old surfer from Wailua, Kauai, who earlier this year claimed the Women’s U.S. Open of Surfing. She is the youngest finalist ever at the U.S. Open of Surfing!

If you've been to Hawaii in the past few years, you've probably heard "Sweet Cherry Bomb" on the radio. The lead singer of Nuff Sedd sang at our wedding and that was really cool. Now we are off to Baltimore, where Jay's family lives. I'll try to find something interesting to post while I'm there. That shouldn't be too hard. After all, John Waters comes from Charm City.

Mele Kalikimaka!

Eat some blue crab for me! Once I had blue crab, I was ruined. I don't need no stinkin' long-legged snow crab. It's blue crab or nothin. Since we live here in California, it's usually nothin.

Have a good trip!

I've wanted to try surfing since September 1972, when the Brady Bunch went to Hawaii. Inspired by your Surf Friday posts I caught my first wave this past weekend. It was awesome! Thank you!

Hope you're having fun in Baltimore. You can bring a certain Ravens player back for me! His initials happen to be KB and he wears #7.

Happy Holidays!

Hope you had a great trip! That was an awesome video. Malia is amazing! Ahhhhh, to have grown up in Cali with good waves instead of Florida with nonexistent ones. Sigh. :)
