Aloha I Am Jesse del Mar 3rd And I Got Into Surfing. Back In The Late 70’s Because Of The Amazing Things Professional Surfer Buttons Was Doing. I Love Seeing The Hawaii’s Great Surfers Like Gerry Lopez , Dane Kealoha , Micheal & Derek Ho!!!! But Montgomery Ernest Thomas “Buttons” Kaluhiokalani Was Doing Incredible Moves, Inspired Me To Surf. But It Wasn’t Until I Retired As A Professional Disc Jockey In Night Clubs & Radio From NYC , Maryland, Washington D.C , San Francisco To The Big Island Of Hawaii. I Came Home Became a LifeGaurd And Went Out Surfing On A Freak Storm That Caused Where I Worked 15 - 20ft That Is When I Broke My Neck In 2 Places. If It Wasn’t For ACCESSURF & Richard Julian & Buttons Got Me Back Into Surfing A Different Way. And They Got Me On My Path To Being An Pro Adaptive Surfer.

Being partially blind, my disablity isn't visible to others as much as other athletes are.  This opens my eyes to never judge someone as we never know what someone is dealing with just because we can't see with our own eyes their challenges.  We never know what someone is dealing with physically or emotionally so I find myself having compassion for people more because of this.  My goal is to beat Matt Formston and win my first ISA world Championships.  My goal is to make the finals and find the 2 best waves in the finals and put up 8's or higher.  Eventually I want to be the first Hawaiian to represent  Hawaii as the first partially blind surfer in the paralympics.

I believe all the planet is connected by this miracle of water.   Surfing waves to heal or compete all over the world.  The power of surfing has changed my life & live to surf as much as possible! 

I deeply care about discarded marine debris & pastic pollution effects on the global oceans.   I strive to see a better, cleaner future for all the generations of surfers out there in the lineup.

Hi, 

My names Harrison Doi, born in Honolulu, Hawaii. Grew up in Kapahulu, Started attempting to surf when I was around 20 years old, Spent most of my life skateboarding. Really glad I was able to progress into surfing, actually started out trying to stand up on a old body board one of my friends  that had left for the mainland had left in the trunk of my car, it was way to small for me lol, must of fell at least a thousand times trying to get up on it. Luckily i was taking a class with a old friend, and I was telling him how much I sucked at stand up bodyboarding, he offered to sell me a old board for $60, took it out to a spot called Tongs for a few months, and started my surfing journey from there. One of the best decisions I've ever made with my life I'm pretty sure!
