Molokai 2019

It’s been a very long time since my last post, but a few of my close friends have inspired me to start writing and posting again. I’ve created a YouTube channel, where I hope to collect content and post Vlog style videos. I’ve added the link below, click the link, hit subscribe and let some videos entertain you. As I lay in my bed in Hut 2B on Kaluakoi Beach on the island of Molokai, I catch myself staring out into the deep, blue, almost never ending Kai’wi channel.

Along with racing ocean ski, I also competed in the United States of America National Surf Lifesaving Championships at Hermosa Beach, where I competed in the Single Ski (2 nd ), Ironman (4 th ), Board Race (5 th ), Taplin Relay (5 th ) and Board Rescue (7 th ).

At the completion of this event it marked a long 3-month journey and it was time to go back to Australia and straight bac
