|That's Joel Centeio (blue shirt), a local Hawaiian pro, with Joel Parkinson on the bottom right.|
Last winter, we were big surfing competition watchers. We still are, but the season is over for now and we just watch repeats on the Surfing Channel. The Triple Crown competition is the biggest one, and we predicted the winner, Joel Parkinson from Australia. Unfortunately, we only made it to the Haleiwa Pro competition (there were 2 others, but rain and low wave delays made it hard for us to go on the weekdays.) We did make it to the North Shore on some non-competition days, though, and enjoyed days of surfing, laying on the sand, and playing in the water.
