And the Contest Comes to a Close

Aoikoike is giving me the "shaka sign". She's standing in front of the prize, a longboard, she won for giving so much to the sport of surfing and this contest in particular. She coaches a group of young Japanese girls from Chiba. That's Stan Matsumoto holding her new board. You might recognize him-----he's famous for his shave ice shop in Haleiwa!

Bravo to all the contestants and, especially, Betty Depolito, the Director of Culturalization! Good job, Banzai Betty!
