Make it official

Finally. After two and a half months of being in Hawaii, we can finally make it official. I went surfing today. Well, sort of. I took a surfboard into the ocean and paddled until I couldn't move my arms, got into a pre-standing position at least twice, but didn't have a lot of success.

Magee and I both got lucky with some good used boards yesterday (Saturday), Magee's was $240, and I managed to get mine for a mere $150...same basic board, mine 7'10" and Magee's 8' both "Funboards."

We grabbed our boards while Lucas and the post night-shift JoAnna slept and walked down to Waikiki to join the masses. There were surfers everywhere. It's sort of surreal getting into the water to try and do something you've only read about and seen others do. We weren't very successful (as noted above).

After everything...it's definitely something I will be doing more of, maybe tomorrow...

Wow guys! I'm jealous of you both. Tell Magge I said hello and expect pictures soon! Sounds like you're doing well.

I'm pulling together photos of my all friends office space. Hope you don't mind if I steal some from above...

Take care boys (and JoAnna)!
