Fresh off the plane from Carlsbad, greeted by 70 degree warm waters and muggy conditions, the Spy crew prepared for 10 crazy days on the North Shore of Oahu. The whirlwind trip consisted of attending the Van’s Triple Crown surf contest at Haleiwa all the while the Spy gang was out in full force wrangling Spy athletes (Dean Morrison, Ben Bourgeois, Clay Marzo, Torrey Meister, Alana Blanchard, Erika Steiner, John John Florence, Nathan Florence, Ivan Florence, and Kanoa Igarashi) from all over the island, checking the surf, building a photoshoot studio, chillin’ at the Spy beach front pad at Log Cabins, housing athletes, shooting all the spring/summer 2010 imagery and editing photos and videos into the wee hours of the night while still finding time for the Hawaiian essentials of plate lunch, surf and beer.

In midst of all the chaos, Spy also was pleased to finally meet face-to-face with Spy’s Hawaiian Bombshell Model Contest winner Hannah Kealia May from Pahoa, HI. She was a serious trooper, staying and joining in the antics of the Spy crew and athletes at the Spy Log Cabins home base. The lovely Hannah beat out hundreds of would-be bombshells for a year long modeling contract with Spy to receive international media exposure with the Spy brand. She endured several days of hair, makeup, wardrobe, flashes, rain and shine and brought home some beautiful Spy photos.
