Howzit turbohog, I wasn’t able to attend the raffle but I got together with Keith yesterday for a few hours. All he said was that the board that he made for the raffle was won by a girl here on Kauai. It was ironic that she won since she didn’t have a board of her own and had been using her boyfriends board. I’m sure the winners list will be posted real soon.Aloha,Kokua
It was a success.
I saw her surfing the board at Palala a couple hours ago.
That is a fine board and generous contribution by Keith Melville and was she stoked!!
Make that Pakala. Her name is Jennifer and she and her boyfriend live in Portland. The other board (shaped and donated by Gregg Hunt) was won by someone in So. Cal.
I wanted to extend a warm “thank you” to all the wonderful hosts & friends we met on Kauai: Ambrose + wife, Annie (Hobcawannie), Jimmy (Kimo) + his son Miguel, Jeff (Tiktokman), Clyde (Edgefins), Mitch (Lokbox), Wildog (Kokua), Lunchmeat, & everyone else. Special thanks to Ambrose for all of his efforts. This man truly embodies the Aloha spirit. This was quite a memorable experience with gorgeous weather & good surf to top it off. My understanding is quite a bit of $ was raised for the relief effort. Thank you to all who supported the cause. Raffle results to be posted in a couple of days upon Keith’s return to the mainland!
