NSSA Sunset

Team Drift surf had a solid showing in this past weekend's NSSA event at /Sunset beach. The waves were a solid 4-6 ft and everyone surfed well. The waves looked like bombing Waimea for Makana Pang who ripped his way to 3rd place. Kaito Kino and Kylen Yamakawa also surfed well to clinch a 3rd place finish in each of their divisions. Good Job!

assorted sizes and designs

We are now selling the EFX band in place of the Power Balance. The EFX band is made from embedded wearable holographic technology, and is designed to stabilize and harmonize the body's bioelectric current. It has two chips on the top and bottom of the band to maximize strength. The benefits of using EFX are that it may reduce stress, jet lag, swelling, and motion sickness. It also may increase balance, strength, flexibiblity, and endurance.

Kaito Kino

Drift Surf Team Rider Kaito Kino has been on a roll, racking up wins in this season's HSA surf series. the first event was at "Queens", where Kaito earned a 2nd place in the juniors, and dominated the open mens by finishing 1st. At the Sandy Beach event, Kaito blitzed the field, coming out with a double win in the juniors and Open men divisions. At "straight-outs" Kaito didn't disappoint, as he made his third straight final of the HSA season, finishing 4th. Good job Kaito! Keep up the good work!!

Last Saturday me and my brother headed out to Makaha at 6 in the morning because he was going to surf in the Quiksilver Makahiki Longboard contest. The waves were really small so they didn't start the contest. So, we headed around the mountain to the North Shore. The waves weren't as good as expected when we got to Ehukai, so we went all the way to Mokuleia to surf this "SECRET" spot. I met up with Kylen, Cole, Mahina, Sayuri, and Kaz. We had a little surf contest that Kaz called "THE BET CHALLENGE." It was fun and i ended up winning(BEST WAVE) a complete meal for lunch and Kylen ended up winning(BEST EAT IT) a drink from Kaz Sano! GO DRIFT SURFERS! Thanks Kazzzzz.

Marcus on his way to Round of 64

Today was the first day of the WQS 5 star Volcom Pipeline Pro. Congrats to Marcus Hickman, Drift team rider, on his advancement to the Round of 64, where he will meet fellow Hawaii surfers Jamie O'Brien, Flynn Novak, and Gavin Gillete. This should be an exciting heat so please check it out on the web or at the beach when contest resumes. Good Luck to Marcus and Hawaii surfers.
