Today I played matchmaker for a new whale friend of mine

She's on Twitter and her name is Failwhale and she's in love with the Twitter Failwhale (pictured above). He shows up on Twitter every time there's a problem on the site. He showed up today on Hutikihi Island so I promised I'd paddle out and try and meet him.


Well, I didn't have much time, but I did give him her lovely photo with her Twitter URL written on it. I sure hope it will blossom into a romance between them!


Then the birds carried him off and he was gone...just like that. At least I caught some rad waves while out there.


Oh, and here's a song dedicated to the Whales that are about to be in love: Sea of Love



If you want to check her out, she's right here: FAILWHALE

    Thanks! I have no idea how i was able to stay on that surfboard AND pass the photo to Failwhale, but you know they are destined to be together and fate works in wondrous ways. :)

    Awwww Gio - such a lovely thing you've done, and such a great picture of you doing it too! Someome brilliant on a boat, maybe?
  • Gothelina 7y

    I've watched you on many occasions and you do seem to have such amazing unique talents!

    Thanks, you're so sweet. xo ! It's kind of my goal in life to try EVERYTHING... ha ha ha. I do admit that surfing and matchmaking at the same time is an odd combo. ;) Such a short life, so much to do...
