I just recieved photos from Sanja Du Plessis, who was nice enough to come along on my escort boat from Molokai to Oahu. Here are some of the images that she came away with from the day of the race...

My other training partner Nicole and her Partner Ron finish the race!
The trusty Wet Feet Support Crew...Cory, Drew, and of course, THE one and only Chris Chang on the front
Nicole called race day the best day of her life. Ha ha, she is like a crazy person...But she had a big smile when it was all over
On a personal note for me, I wanted to say a special thanks to Go Kandoo Oahu (http://www.gokandoo.com) for providing me with what was probably the nicest escort boat in the whole race. Kyle Kim and his crew over there were so awesome and their help was very much appreciated.
I would also like to thank Joe Bark and his crew in LA (http://www.barkocean.com) for helping us out with our boards for the race. Not only were they the best looking boards out there, but they were fast as well.
