Sukeroku BentoThe Sushi Dish You’ve Eaten Without Knowing! One of the best things about traveling is trying new food—and nowhere has better food than Japan. Sushi is the first thing that pops to mind for most people when they think of eating in Japan, but what many people don’t know is that there are actually a number of different types of sushi. Two of the most popular are combined in something called a sukeroku bento—a dish you may not have heard of before, but have likely seen dozens of times in Hawaii. A sukeroku bento is the classic sushi sampler...

Paul Naude and the History of Vissla Many people know about the brand Vissla—it has gone from being a boutique cottage brand to an industry staple over the past five years—but few people know the story of how it started. But The Surfer’s Journal recently ran an article about Paul Naude that gives a great history behind the brand. I suggest that anyone interested in Vissla or surf history in general take a look at the article—but if you don’t have time, here are Cliff Notes!* Paul Naude grew up in Durban, South Africa, and was part of the Shaun...

The Value of Naps Most people know that sleep is important, but many fail to understand exactly how essential good sleep is for our health. While we are sleeping, our bodies repair injuries, reduce inflammation, and allow the mind to recover. Inflammation is a huge factor in diseases such as cancer, heart disease, sinusitis, and numerous other ailments, and anytime your body doesn’t get to recover completely, inflammation builds up in the body. This weakens the immune system and makes you more susceptible to the diseases mentioned above. In fact, it’s been found that even the simple sleep disruption of...

Hara Hachi Bu - The Health Benefits of Eating Until You're 80% Full I once heard it said that Thanksgiving isn’t over until you hate yourself. While that little quip might be worth a few chuckles, the sad reality is that here in the US, we often eat to excess—and not just on Thanksgiving. No matter what time of year it is, many of us are in the habit of eating until we are full—and then eating a bit more. This might bring us happiness in the short-term, but a nasty bout of indigestion isn’t fun for anyone—not to mention...

Mugicha: Japan’s Favorite Drink That You’ve Probably Never Heard Of One of the most exhilarating parts of visiting and living in other countries and cultures is the opportunity to explore their unique food and drinks. Growing up in Okinawa, I was exposed to all sorts of interesting dishes and beverages, but perhaps the one that I recall the most vividly, at least during the summer months, is mugicha. Mugicha is tea made from roasted barley and is a staple of the Japanese diet during summer. It is extremely cool and tasty, and a great way to refresh yourself during a...

KOMBUCHA: GOOD HEALTH THROUGH GOOD DRINKS David Kelly | Owner, Hawaiian South Shore I’ve been drinking kombucha for the past two years now. I usually drink one bottle of kombucha every day, and I really like it. The probiotics (a.k.a. good bacteria) that grow in kombucha help to ensure that our digestive systems have good bacteria that are necessary for optimal health. Especially in an age when antibiotics are prescribed liberally throughout the world. It is quite common to lack these healthy probiotics, so it is important to find ways to replace them. I’ve always been conscious of the fact...

TREAT YOUR FEET TO AN AT HOME MASSAGE David Kelly | Owner, Hawaiian South Shore We’ve been lucky this summer to have a few swells. Boy last year the surf was pretty bad. After surfing for several days in a row, my feet started to bother me. I think my feet really ache me most times because I’m flat footed. Also, often times when I work for several days on my feet, I do feel it. When I get that feeling of needing a massage, and I don’t have the time to go, I use my foot roller massage. Actually,...

THE VARYING CULTURES OF TOKYO AND OSAKA David Kelly | Owner, Hawaiian South Shore One of the convenient perks of being a surfer is that we are often inspired to travel. Although we may plan most of our trips around swells and specific waves, the travel that we do in pursuit of surf, exposes us to a wide diversity of cultures, which broadens us and makes us better informed and more tolerant. Plus, it’s exciting! While it is common to find different cultures in different countries, many people fail to realize the cultural diversity that is present in different regions...

KUROSHIO CURRENT AND ITS EFFECT ON THE WEATHER David Kelly | Owner, Hawaiian South Shore I’d never heard about the Kuroshio Current until a couple of days ago. My wife was watching a documentary, and asked me if I knew what it was, or that it was possibly the reason Hawaii has had such wonky weather over the past few months. Anything that can affect the weather (and by extension, the surf) has my interest, so I decided I’d better dive in and start researching the phenomenon. The Kuroshio Current is a north flowing current located near Japan. It is similar...
