Hawaii Ocean Expo 2013 & Fishing

Had a great time at the Hawaii Ocean Expo. Got to spend time with old and new friends...I thought I had pics, but I guess I didn’t take too many. Hahaha! Isaac “Rocket” Brumaghim was there on both days...for those of you who don’t know who Isaac is (you must have been under a rock or something), he’s the famous kayak fisherman w/Chompy The Shark.

Had some time to kill, so we went on a run on our Hobie TI. Fun day, but not much fish...

Got a couple of Kawelea and a bunch of Opelu, but not much else...Better than nothing I guess... =)

Windward Boats/Hobie Kayak Demo

Windward Boats and Hobie Kayaks set up a demo day where people could sign up to try out whatever Hobie kayak that they’d like. Kind of like a try before you buy kind of thing. Spent a beautiful day at the beach setting people up with PFDs and kayaks and letting them sample the beauty of the Hobie Mirage drive.

2012 Hawaii Ocean Expo

We got to spend 2 days at the Hawaii Ocean Expo at the Windward Boats area doing some of our favorite things...Talking to people about the wonderful sport of kayak fishing and to show off our Hobie Mirage Tandem Island.

RealBVoice34

RealBvoice34 is a brand born in 2000 to honor Buffalo Keaulana (and the Keaulana ohana), a legendary surfer from Makaha, Hawaii. RealBvoice34 is a partnership between the Keaulana ohana and Mr. U, owner of Bandai Corporation in Japan. The “B” in RealBvoice comes from Uncle Buffalo, the 34 stands for the 34 years that Uncle Buff was a lifeguard and the year he was born.

We met Mr. U through the Keaulanas and gave him an Uyeda Brothers t-shirt, and we were humbled when he put on while we were in a Chinese restaurant we were eating at in Waianae. We received a package today from FedEx from Mr. U (and Satomi Shoji) with t-shirts, long sleeve shirts, and decals. We are STOKED beyond belief!

BIG MAHALO to Mr. U and the Keaulanas for all your support! We are honored to wear and use RealBvoice products.

Hawaii Fishing and Seafood Festival

The Hawaii Fishing and Seafood Festival that is put on by the Pacific Islands Fisheries Group is a wonderful event that brings together the best of Hawaii’s fishing and seafood communities. It attracts over 20,000 people each year (I think it must have been easily over 30,000 this year). The festival was free for the public and took place at Honolulu’s Fishing Village at Pier 38 on Sunday, October 9, 2011 from 9am-4pm and had over 100 vendors. There are fishing related demos throughout the day, games for the keiki, and exhibits for all to enjoy.

We had a GREAT time meeting and talking with everyone that stopped by at our booth and came to the kayak fishing demo we did with Chris “Hammah” Paglinawan. Chris showed that you don’t need a lot to go kayak fishing and still be a successful kayak fisherman...

We only snapped a few pictures after we set up, but don’t have many pics of the rest of the day because we were happily swamped with people around our booth all day.

Hobie Demo Day @ Kailua Beach Park

Windward Boats sponsors a Hobie Kayak Demo 6-8 times a year and we were fortunate to be included in this one. The demo earlier this year was the one where we fell in love with the Hobie Mirage Tandem Island. We go to Kailua Beach Park around 8AM and Lorraine Garnier and Ryan were already there. We rushed to help set the kayaks up and get them ready for the day.

We had a great day taking people sailing, teaching them about safety, and how the Hobie Kayaks work. Met some wonderful people and reconnected with long lost friends.
