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.
Another great day was had at Manawale’a Riding Center for some therapeutic horseback riding. Manawale’a will work with children of all ages regardless of mental or physical challenges and are able to accommodate large or small groups.
Depending on a riders experience and comfort, a beautiful trail ride is offered which includes exercises to help with balance and coordination.
Heres video we took of doing this. Also check out the video of the safe and comfortable hoyer lift used to assist with transferring on and off their horses. Aloha

I had one of the most beautiful days in my life! It was an amazing day on the north shore of Oahu, perfect weather for a long time dream. The boat ride 3 miles offshore was breathtaking.
Upon reaching the dive location the boat idled for a bit, the sound of the diesel engines attracting the sharks to the surface. The metallic boat hull and propellers also give off electricity that’s attractive to these graceful creatures. I learned later that our bodies give off energy that the cage only amplifies which also attracts sharks.
As I sat at the edge of the boat preparing to descend into the cage I could see thru the crystalline waters a shark swimming directly below the cage. Much to my surprise seeing these amazing creatures underwater and up close was very peaceful. They swim with such a grace thats truly amazing. It was such a beautiful time and I look forward to continuing my relationship with life’s beauty. – Aloha
Another wonderful day at Skydive Hawaii with tandem jump instructor Richard Dopplemayer aka “Papa Dop”. It was a beautiful sunny day with passing cloud cover.
On our load, they found a nice big puka or hole in the clouds for us to jump through. The view was amazing and freefall flight was epic.
I was able to strap my GoPro on my chest so that I could share our view of the jump. You can hear on the video when we are low enough to see my Mogo wheelchair for landing, and theres a cool picture below of us targeting my chair on final approach.
The week before this, I was surfing and happened to meet the band Third Eye Blind. They were very nice and sincere guys. I wanted to put a beautiful relaxing song on my jump footage and used their song “The Background”, which we so happened to have a memorable conversation about at the beach.
Love life! Aloha
