Last night I rolled up the hill in my neighborhood to the skate park. It was after hours and late and yes, pitch black. But I wanted badly to try rolling around nevertheless. And as my buddy Brett Martin taught me, “Make it happen!” Which is exactly what we did.
Me and buddy Mark charged around in the dark as he ran behind me shining the light from his cell phone and goproing. Mark spotted me up hills and on table tops.
Pure fun was had!! Much aloha – Damon
Special Olympics Hawaii held their annual event Over The Edge, a fundraiser for their athlete program. Each entrant must raise a minimum $1000 that will fund a single athletes sports program for one year.
This year I returned to sponsor this great cause and rappelled 40 stories down The Hyatt Regency Hotel in Waikiki. Last I set the record at 300 ft and by becoming the first and only chair user to do such a feat in Hawaii. This year I was able to break that record by adding an additional 100 ft.
And if that wasnt enough, rather than landing on an open area like everyone else we came in sideways through a balcony to avoid hoofing it up a few flights of narrow scaffolding stairs. Extreme all the way!
I’d like to thank all who supported me in this beautiful event. It was a great success! Aloha – Damon
Yesterday I woke up to a beautiful sunny day and thought what a great day for a jump at Skydive Hawaii. It was epic conditions, blue skies and perfect winds.
I had such a fun jump. We exited forward, somersaulting into freefall. While burning a hole in the sky at 120 mph I practiced body positioning and left and right turns. After deploying chute I practiced some canopy work too. Thank you so much Brett Martin! Another awesome day at Skydive Hawaii.
