I haven't been as on it with updates and I apologize but polo is still going strong here in Honolulu. Jorge is still recovering from his accident. We are still putting together a bike for him so any and all help you can donate to the project is appreciated. In the mean time I do like these two photos that were taken recently. Oh and these dope wheel covers that were printed as prizes from the Broken Coconuts tourney by Jinxy . Thanks again Jinxy.

The Broken Coconut tourney went down well. It started a lil late but once it was under way it was unstoppable. The games got more intense as the day progressed. Congrats to team Tupperware for winning the tourney. One of greatest things I can say about playing polo in paradise isnt that we have some great sceneary with the ocean side courts and lush green mountains. No its the chill level headed people we meet and get the chance to share time with on and off the polo court.

I haven't updated in a while and I apologize but I wrecked my ankle last night at polo and can't even stand on it so here I am at the computer sitting. I wasn't able to attend aloha sunday this past weekend where a 5 team round robin style mini tourney took place. I was however able to attend last weds where I bent my fork, which Jai replaced with his own handbuilt beefy fork. I swear to god the fork weighs five punds but my janky bike has never felt sturdier. We have had a couple of the H-bomb gravity bike guys come out.

Here are some random photos just to let you know polo is still thriving in Hawaii. Clark helped some kids fix a flat like the good guy he is this past week. When its sunny we play, when its dark we play, when it rains we still play. Ill be better about updates...

Matt Ching aka Pedal Piff conjured this idea up a while back and told me about it. Im stoked its here finally. I think the status is obvious...while on a bike dodge the ball or hit another person with the ball. Same rules as dodge ball but on bikes kids. Come out this Weds it'll go down at 5pm at Makiki park and continue in between polo pickups till no ne is left riding a bike. Eilif spent his vacation nights doodling up this dope poster for the event. Come check it out it'll be a great time.

This Sunday (3/27) will be Robs last day out here. He will be on a plane during normal polo hours for Sundays so we are bumping this Sundays start time to 2pm. As always it will be at Makiki. Hope every one can make it. Rob will be missed on the polo courts out here for sure as he is always full of positive vibes, smiles, laughter, and broken chainrings. Rob whatever the new endeaveur is I wish you the best of luck and look forward to playing polo with you again somewhere in the poloverse. Rob will show up looking something like this...

Polo has continued to grow and thrive in paradise. I apologize for the lack of photos on the blog as my camera has been busy filming for another polo related project so it contains less footage that is able to be shown at this time. If your at the polo court with a camera and your shooting or filming between games and want it up on the blog feel free to send them to me or drop me a disc or thumb drive at pickup games.

As off late due to terrible weather we have indeed been turning our spot on the courts into a chanti town esque establishment. Tarps draped over a single bench with the watering hole placed next to it and bbq grills come into the picture as we get hungry. Here is a flick taken of said moments. Its not the best picture as the watering hole was running low by this point. Now get your polo bike and show up tonight!

I arrive home today after a long days work, tired from lack of sleep due to last nights wind storm. I go to the fridge and reach for a cold pint of "Japans oldest beer" I say "Wassup?" to the mutt and take a sat. On the counter I see in the stack of bills an issue of Honolulu Magazine. HNL Bike polo has not had very much media attention and we are all pretty stoked that we got some publicity via Honolulu's most widely read magazine. I personally enjoyed the article it touches on polo history of the world for a second and then brings it back to our growing thriving scene in Honolulu.

Between classes today I was working on some video editing for another project when I came across a clip from this weekend. I was becoming bored with the project I was working on due to lack of material so I decided to take a 5 minute break and put this quickie together instead. A funny note about the song choice is that I'm pretty sure this is infact how Clark got his scratch on his nose that day. This past Weds polo went all night long, I bailed at 10pm and games continued on. Everybody has been becoming more dedicated to showing up and playing more polo.

This past weekend involved one of our best polo celebrations yet. We helped celebrate Clarks birthday with some beer, cake, a pinata, and of course polo. Everybody had a great time as far as I could tell, but was I really a good judge of the matter? Possibly not. Keeping this one short and sweet here are some flicks from the celebration (Caution some may be offended by our cakes of choice) and come on out to WEDS POLO tomorrow 6pm at Makiki.

I haven't updated in a while, Ive been sick and over taken by this semester. We have been having a good amount of success holding polo twice a week lately. The day that seems to work the best is Weds. We have been playing at our usual spot at 6pm for three weeks now and the turn out while it started meek has turned into nothing short of our usual Sunday crowd. Hopefully we can keep this twice a week going.

We have had some rainy weather this past week. It's our Hawaiian snow i guess and we can still play polo so not all is bad. Micheal shot some footage with his I phone which I hastley put together this week. We all hope Ariel is doing better, he was involved in a non-polo related eye injury this past weekend. We all hope to see him back on the polo court soon.

A bunch of us have been pushing now to try and solidify a weekday to play polo on. While we strived for Weds. they never seemed to come together. A bunch of us kicked around the idea of playing on Tuesday night this week and while there was a decent amount of people who said they could make it the numbers of those who actually showed were small. Enough showed up for 2v2 and we didn't let that deter our evening of polo. Nor did we let me fucking up lengthening of my chain. It took Clark, Josh, and I way to long to piece my chain back together in the dark.

Big Mark has sent out all of the 1/8 inch mallet heads to trade out for the new ones. Hopefully Big Mark will get some of those new heads back in time for this next Sundays games. Here is a video my homie from Maekr Films put together of this past weeks mayhem. Im digging it. Hope you all enjoy it as well.

So this week has been a rough one for polo. This month rather. We are running through mallet heads, shafts, forks, chainrings, and rims. The damaged goods are stacking tall these days. Fucking Danny was in for a couple and promptly off back to Cali after some beer, whiskey, and polo. It was good to have him back even if only for an hour or two. I didnt get to many flicks this week as there was another photogrpaher on the court. But here is a couple of broken pieces from my own collection.

This past Sunday was a blast. It was great playing in the pouring rain for a game or two. No pictures of rainy games cause I wasn't trying to kill my camera. Cyrus showed up with the uni-cycle again which always makes for interesting polo matches, pretty uneven, but interesting. Ariel brought his new Eighth Inch mallet and it didnt last past the first joust. Eighth inch is rumoring a new sturdier compound being used for heads but I think the heads are heavy to begin with and because of that the shafts are made light and thin to make up for it.
