Aloha PPK. I really appreciate the pics and memorial added to my little post here. I'm not worthy, but, I hope it stays around forever.

I too wish I could've been around a bit longer for the paddleout and memorial. I was there the day he passed, and was on my way to the airport, back to my mainland "home" when word was first aired on KONG that Andy passed. I was driving just past Kilauea when I heard, and was in total shock. I almost had to stop my car, and try not to believe it was true. I wanted to stay and try to be there for what I KNEW was going to be a HUGE deal there on the north shore of Kauai and Hanalei.

Andy was looked up to and respected by so many on Kauai, most people elsewhere wouldn't even know. I've only caught occasional glimpses of him and Bruce at the Princeville Foodland a couple times, and wanted to say something to him/them, but didn't want to be a "haole kook" about it. I did get to surf with both Andy, Bruce, Sunny and Ben at Trestles a few years back during a hurricane swell, when they were warming up for the WCT pro contest that was eventually held on a following epic So-Hemi swell the next few days. It was well overhead the day we surfed, but a bit too peaky/shorter period for epic Trestles compared to a thumping lined up So-Hemi they had for the contest, but epic in it's own right. I'll always remember that day. Andy was getting his share and ripping them apart like it was little play waves. I have a story from back in the 70's at Malibu that's related to "Uncle Ben" Aipa (as I guess he's known by there for a while now, I suppose), Buttons, and Mark Liddell, but that's for another day.

As I mentioned in one of the early posts, Andy will always be remembered as the epitome of a surfer known to us mortals as a "charger". You look up the word in the dictionary, and his picture should be there. Grace under pressure, similar to Gerry Lopez in style and ease in incredibly terrifying conditions to most of us. He made surfing Big Pipeline, Teahupoo, Cloudbreak, Wiamea and others look too damn easy. I know he surfed the breaks on Kauai's north shore in truly hairball/scary size and conditions and ruled (along with Titus). That's the mark of a truly great surfer, making the hairball and difficult look way too easy.

He will be missed by so many. There's going to be a big hole in the pro and free surfing world that will be hard to fill for a long, long time.

Andy, surfing will be a bit less exciting without you here.
Aloha

2011 cottage/condo availability update:

Jan-Feb: booked solid.

March 1-18 open (though I may be there a few days during that period, will work around any potential bookings that period until further notice).

March 28 on is WIDE OPEN the rest of the year.

I likely have a return visitor around Dec/Jan/Feb 2011-2012, but not confirmed (yet). Book now for late-winter/early spring surf season. Or put a deposit in for next fall/winter. Spots will go.

Summer is beautiful in Hanalei also, with surf still possible (though short lived and smaller, not a bad thing) on the North Shore.

True bro-deals are available for stays of 1 week or more. Even short stays are un-beatable for a 2 bdrm duplex/cottage style place like mine. DARE TO COMPARE. Close to everything in Princeville/Hanalei.

I have a few 'erBB references available if interested.

Aloha.

Just got back from a weeks stay at Surfdog's Condo. He isn't exaggerating. The place is great... excellent location...fully equipped...large...sweet kitchen and bathrooms...and he was really professional/friendly to work with.

Anybody that wants further details feel free to shoot me a PM.

And thanks again Surfdog! We had a great time.

Availability update for 2011:

February is booked solid. Only openings in March are 1-7 and 13-18.

April 5th and onward is wide open. Some interest later in the year, and some return visitors likely next fall and winter, but nothing confirmed yet.

Get your reservation/deposit in early to hold a date.

Unbeatable rates. Similar to some little studio/apartment style rates, but much more room to stretch out in. More like a cottage than a condo.

Sping and Summer in Hanalei is beautiful also. Not as hot as other parts of the island in Summer too.

Availability update.

Surf dog, If I happen to luck into a Kauai trip and rent your pad, will I get to meet PPK? That alone might incentive

Hey Cube. Yes, the likelyhood of meeting up with PPK down at Black Pot is very high. I have his cell # if needed, but that's only limited to select few, and only if you rent my place.

Since my post has reached 2 pages, I thought I'd update some interior pics, along with the rent schedule and availability.

living room with lights on


Dining area with new table


The old dining table in the first pic had seen better days (came with place), and seemed like it was built for menehunes, a good fews inches shorted than normal. So I sprung for a new table on my last short visit in July.

close up pic of the kitchen backsplash. I'm specially proud of the glass tile work done by the tile guy we had, who also did most all of the recent upgrade work (kitchen, baths, flooring) we did back in '09-'10.

He normally only does custom homes, and doesn't touch lowly condo upgrades, but it was very slow for him in the economic depths of early-mid 2009, and he was a friend of our RE agent, so we scored bigtime. Great guy, fair prices, but hard to get in touch with. He's always very busy with custom projects. By the way, the tile layout was my design, and he followed it to the "T".

2011 and 2012 availability update:

Availble NOW til year end (Jan 7, 2012 latest). Some interest for return and new visitors in late summer/early fall (Sept/Oct/Nov), but no confirms, yet. Have interest in late Dec/early Jan, but also not confirmed. First deposit gets the dates confirmed.

Get confirms in soon for Fall/early Winter 2011.

2012 availability update:

Jan 9-March 7 is reserved.

Mid-March 2012 may be booked a few days, but will work around any interest between March 8-March 28.

March 29-April 27 2012 is reserved (start/end dates may change slightly).

May 19-May 28 is reserved.

Fall and Winter 2011 will book up. Get in while the dates are still open.

PM me for details and a brochure I put together, or send me a e-mail (check "Surfdog" on avatar for addy), or leave message here.

Aloha
