peter_mel Albert "Rabbit" Kekai....Always had a good dirty joke to tell and tidbits of info regarding your upcoming heat. A genuine sweet soul. I'll always cherish the moments I spent talking with him. He will always be remembered by the entire surfing world. I'll miss you Rabbit, but you'll never be forgotten. 3d

  •   jnsphotographyandimaging I'm so excited to hear the news of a womans BWT event! There's no doubt that the woman have proven their ability to charge in the heavy stuff and I can't imagine how great this will be for not only the sport of surfing in general, but for the future of Big wave surfing all around the globe! I would give anything to be a part of this amazing advancement in our culture! 1mon

peter_mel Here's a shot from our balcony today. @johnmel_ slotted in a #superbank drainer. It's our last couple days here in the GoldCoast and the waves came to wish us fair well. What a great few weeks here. 2mon

peter_mel Last couple of days on the Gold Coast. Could be seeing a few more waves at the #superbank before I leave for Torquay, Australia. I'm going to miss wearing boardies. @boskophoto 2mon

peter_mel The @quiksilver and @roxy Pro's have ended a week early. That means we get to go surfing. This is shot by good friend @boskophoto I've known Bosko for ages. He has always been one of the most positive guys I know. Always pumping you up. Thank you for the photos and all the great years of fun. This is a little Dbah shot from yesterday. Back out there for more. 2mon

peter_mel What a first day of competition here on the GoldCoast. The @quiksilver Pro got underway with Round 1. Some of the highlights for me? @wiggolly went bananas today on his backhand. Pulling out the firehouse as @rosswilliamshawaii would say. A stellar performance from Santa Cruz's own @nat_young I also liked the approach of the Coolie Kids @joelparko and @mfanno Another big day on tap for tomorrow. We might get an early start tomorrow as the high tide is in the late morning. Rumors are that we could get underway at 7:30am AEST. Check into the @wsl and watch #dawnpatrol Hosted by our own @rondogblakey Also some great analyses from @joeturpel @rosyhodge @bededurbo @stridersworld @mrpottz Its gonna be a fun year!! 3mon

peter_mel Back on the #goldcoast for the @quiksilver and @roxy Pros. Praying that Huey brings some surf. I've been here for a week and the sand is still groomed and ready. The first couple of days of the waiting period should see some easterly wind swell. It could provide some consistent shoulder to head high walls. So much anticipation to start the new season. Who's your pick for the @wsl World Title? @johnmel_ 3mon

peter_mel The @quiksilver in memory of Eddie Aikau event ran today. It is always an honor and privilege to share time with everyone who participates. From the surfers and fans to all that help put the event and broadcast on. Especially to the @northshorelifeguardassociation and the @hawaiianwaterpatrol for keeping everyone safe. Today I was overcome with emotion honoring the heroes I've looked up to my entire life. Especially Eddie Aikau and @brock.little Some of the highlights for me were sharing an hour session with Clyde Aikau. His performance today was a true inspiration. I will forever remember his "eye of the tiger" when paddling into the waves he rode today. Another would be the support of the fans. Hearing the cheers from all of you as we walked to surf. The energy was like nothing I've ever felt. Thank you all for the experience, I will never forget it. Congratulations to everyone who charged today and to @john_john_florence for cementing himself in surfing history. 3mon

peter_mel The Gold Coast of Australia treated everyone to a very nice day. Perfectly shaped sand banks, overhead surf and offshore winds. I saw spectacular rides from @mfanno @joelparko @tajamos along with a cast of hundreds. Even with the crowds the experience was amazing. I love watching and surfing perfect waves. That session will make the 10 hour flight to Hawaii a bit nicer. Next stop, the NorthShore. More swell on the way. Could we see the @quiksilver In memory of Eddie Aikau event go off? Let's hope so. Tune in to the @wsl for more info. 3mon

peter_mel Brock Little will always be remembered. He passed away from cancer yesterday. It happened really quickly. Which is a good thing , I guess. But it brings up so many emotions. I'm angry because he was so young. I'm sad because I won't get to physically laugh with him anymore. I'm solemn because he is not suffering. One thing for sure is, I will always remember him. Thank you Brock for being and individual and never following anyone else's path. It was always yours. RIP Brock..... 3mon

peter_mel Yesterday at Mavericks was the best I've seen in a very longtime. From Sunrise to Sunset it was perfection. The early morning was light offshore. Midday the wind kicked in a bit stronger out of the East, perfect time for the Maui boys to get their kicks in. The afternoon gave an hour of light onshore, which actually helped to give you the little boost. Then the evening finished in oil glass. Top it off sharing the experience with my son @johnmel_ Couldn't of asked for a better day with family and friends. Thanks to @powerlinesproductions and @frank_quirarte_photo for calling sets and rescues. Stoked everyone made it home safe. Frame grab @fluid_vision 4mon
