Well the past couple of days on the North and West Shore's of the Hawaiian Islands went off!! The waves were BIG really BIG, the Biggest in years. This has been only the 8th time that the contest got the green light and on tuesday the BAY did not disappoint as thousands of visitors and locals left with their jaws wide open. Big clean waves rolled in and Cali locale Greg Long emerged as the winner.

The Best and Most Powerful surfer of his time Dane Kealoha. From Rockies,Backdoor,Town and everywhere he surfed... Dane slayed the wave like no other!! Here's a special set i have cherished a TOWN AND COUNTRY SURF DESIGNS ,DANE KEALOHA model shaped by none other than the man Glenn Minami. This is a 5'11" twin fin swallowtail model that is very hard to find,accompanying this board is another super rare find. The matching orange short sleeve T&C Dane Kealoha model T-shirt. I'm wondering when we are going to see a Dane Kealoha board being auctioned off at the Hawaiian Island Vintage surfboard auctions.
