We had the chance to do a little lurking on the set of local movie production "One Kine Day" and even snuck in a quick Q and A with local director Chuck Mitsui from 808 Skate fame. I must say the set was very impressive and Chuck seemed to be running a very tight ship. After enjoying lunch with the director and Lady Zana we sat in on a few live rehearsals and got to see everyone's favorite gaffer Lukas get busy. Haolewood Productions Stay Up.!! Stay tuned for the official trailer.

"To be honest," I like to tell it how it is, unless I'm trying to get a good performance.
6. What is the quality you most like in an actor/actress?
Actors who know how to listen are capable of giving the truest performances. If they don't listen they are just acting.

When I started ASH, the Association of Skateboarders in Hawaii, in 1996, it was my goal to create legal and safe places for skaters to practice their sport.

I am proud to have been part of the process and glad I could give back to the communities who supported skateboarding.

Since I was 10, so I guess this makes it my silver anniversary.

Zana, my Mom and The Mew. Love comes in many different forms.

Sean Reilly, his vision is often misunderstood but always amuses.
