Scott Watson the developer of Waterfalling Estates confirmed that Justin Bieber is staying at the place that he developed in a Facebook post.

Watson wrote:

“I just left WaterFalling where Justin Bieber is staying for 2 weeks.  He’s kicking it with 7 girls and a couple of his buddies.  I couldn’t get a picture with him, his body guard wouldn’t let me go the last few feet to shake his hand.  Oh well, looks like I’m gonna be a Swifty instead.

Hawaii Skydivers Make Historic Jump – Land in Cuba

This past week skydivers from Hawaii flew to Cuba to take part in a historic jump.  Skydive Hawaii presented the largest Cuban flag to be flown over their country to Skydive Varadero.

Frank T.K. Hinshaw made the first large flag jump over Varadero landing with the Cuban national anthem being played over their public address system during the first friendship competition.

Hinshaw posted the following on Facebook:  They let me jump, just like this. Amazing. They could’ve let a Cuban make the historic first jump, but instead they let this crazy Americano do it.

Hinshaw in CubaFellow Skydive Hawaii members, Richard Doppelmayer, Nelson Suarez, William DeBlois and Elio Esqueda joined Hinshaw in the historic jump.  His father Frank Hinshaw (Sr.) was the sponsor and representative for Skydive Hawaii.

T.K. went on to say, “Our goal was to establish friendly relationships with the Cuban skydivers and to understand their needs in order to conduct safer skydiving and grow the sport within their country. We’d like to see more Cubans be able to access the sport…

To that end, we are hoping that we receive a Office of Foreign Assests Control (OFAC) approval to provide gear, training, and possibly an aircraft.

Cuba is beautiful and we believe our island skydiving expertise can bridge the division between America and Cuba. My hope is that our relationship normalize and that both countries can realize their full potential in working together for a brighter future for both the people of the United States and Cuba.”
