This last Friday we held a farewell BBQ for our good friend Ion Myke. After 7 years of service at BH Myke is finally moving on to bigger and better things. It was only appropriate that the SXA Ohana hooked him up with a little "Pau Hana Friday" BBQ at our beloved Magic Island spot. If you're wondering why there isn't any food on the grill in the pics below it's because it was gone long before I remembered to pull out the camera to capture some Kodak moments. You will notice however that the SXA grill also doubles as a legit bonfire pit. It provided the warmth and light we needed to finish off everything that we had in the cooler!
Spent a couple evenings last week printing some tees for my friend Tsuyoshi the owner of FELEM SKATES in Japan. According to Tsuyoshi the Japanese love themselves some BBQ just like we do here in Hawaii. Being that he runs the most hardcore skateshop / distribution I feel very honored to have my SXA goods in his shop next to a lot of the brands that inspired me to do what I do. FELEM carries Jason Jessee's Driven Skateboards and Hi Bond Modified as well as Kyle's Death Machine Corpse, and Grant's Royal Hawaiian Pool Service. Aside from owning a skateshop Tsuyoshi also has his hands in on building skateparks both in Japan as well the new parks in Lahaina and Hana, Maui. He's been understudying under the Grindline crew who are notorious skatepark builders from the Pacific Northwest. If you ever need to find Tsuyoshi when he's here in Hawaii all you have to do is go to the Hideaway Bar and he's usually there suckin' em up with da braddahs!

SXA would like to wish all you "fada's" as we say here in Hawaii a Happy Father's Day! Hopefully you've got your favorite beverage, the BBQ grill going, and enjoying your day with your family! I spent the morning going through some old photos of some of my friends with their families as well as my own family that I wanted to share with you guys.
