WE love Hawaii, the six crazy weeks on the North Shore and Reef's unashamedly brazen application of skin to market themselves.
What do Reef sell again? Who rides for them? These girls? Awesome, we'll take them all. Hawaii rocks and amidst the grief of losing a favourite son a spot fun does not go unappreciated.
The North Shore pumped on Sunday night, 1000s flocked down the paddle-out for Andy Irons at Hanalei on Kauai and the scene is set for another full-on six weeks of competition, freesurfing, parties and shows like this.
Speaking of which the actual surfing looks set to start today.
