Quick Hits: : “The Moroccan superstar Boujmaa Guilloul arrived just in time to put in a solid day finishing 2nd. The Kanaha Kid Casey Rehrer’s Ho’okipa training paid off with a 1st place finish in the Amateur division. Makoto Iwasaki and Miho Tanaka came all the way from Japan to put in impressive results. Robby Naish put in some solid time on the water throwing down some signature huge Push Loops and wave smacks… more soon to come!
