Nathan, Tomo and I participated in the Single Fin All Stars contest in Shizoka last week. We arrived at the beach just before sunrise, and we didn't leave until after sunset. Needless to say, it was the longest beach day of my life. Because of the party at Ron Herman the night before, we slept like 3 hours before we had to make the 3 hour drive from Hiratsuka to Shizoka. It was quite a wild introduction to Japan, but we had a blast.
I got a crazy micro-fiber towel, designed by our friend Mr. Hanai.
Nate made it to the final!
Yuta and Ryoko were there!
And people seemed pretty stoked on Nathan's noseride take-offs.
