Malibu Day 1

Dawn Patrol..and there's at least 50 people in the line up already...

The road trip essentials...
Your all around board, your favorite cap, a pillow, a dry towel, GPS, Ipod, and lots of Red Bull...

Appear! Kapatid Neil and Jun the man!

Erwin had a fat Tilapia with 2 fins for breakfast

Papa John and Magic Al drove down with us to Malibu from Santa Cruz. Nice board!

Wonder why Miguel had a huge smile when he went in. I think Papa John knows why.

Me, Noah, his lovely friend, Erwin, Jun, and Kuya Raul the man.

Was rinsing my board in the outdoor shower and the person next to me offered to help me turn on the water.
Didn't recognize him right away because of all the water in my eyes. Then I told him I think I've seen you in surf films. He said "Maybe..."

Soon realized that I was actually talking to one of the best longboarders in the world.
Noah Shimabukuro.
Watched him in Beneath the Surface and Tales From The Black Van a dozen times.
