Keala and I// Yikes!
On Friday we attended the Billabong XXL awards show with Roberta, who is back from her time in Canada (Yay!!). You would think the vibes at such an event would be intense as all the nominees spend the year leading up to the awards chasing the biggest waves in the world and risking their lives in the process, but it was anything but. Surfers grace the blue carpet wearing their best flannel shirts and awesome accessories like vintage war goggles. We were especially excited to see Shane Dorian and Keala Kennelly, two of our surf heros. Some of the award categories included biggest wave, monster paddle, biggest tube, worst wipeout and male and female performance of the year. Crazy stuff, huh?
