Let's start with a tough one.
Watch this video and see how brutally these dolphins are slaughtered.
If it sickened you enough, sign the petition here.
And next time you go grocery shopping think that cows and chickens are killed pretty much the same way.
By the way, nice chicken yesterday Ulli! (I love to contraddict myself).
Signed? Ok, you just deserved something special.
Ladies and gentleman, Pipeline at its very best.
Liked the video? The photos are even better!
The view from the channel in the second photo is mesmerizing. I hope you guys can see these photos even without being a member... let me know in the comments.
Sometimes I wonder what I would do if I would end up in a wheelchair. I think I'd be a bit bummed. Actually, I think I'd be pissed off for the rest of my life. But today I read this and I changed my mind.
In the island of Sal (Cabo verde) the first wave contest of the 2007 Professional Windsurfing Association tour just finished. "Local" Josh Angulo won in a double final against Kauli Seadi. Kevin Pritchard took third and Jason Polakow fourth.
The conditions were insane. Prolly the best wavesailing conditions in a PWA event ever. Check the videos. Watch them all... I can't believe how clean those waves are.
Forward and back loops off the lip... huge aerials... man, that must have been fun to judge...
Meanwhile... here in a pro-less Maui the normal sailors have been having a lot of fun at Hookipa in the past four days. Yesterday I had a blast and today it was even more fun with frequent head high sets, at times bigger.
I can't believe how much fun I can have, despite the awareness of being still pretty much a kook after 6 years in Maui. I love that.
I almost wish I won't get any better. Allright, that's a stretch.
Here's a few friends (that are a lot better) in yesterday's sesh.
Let's start with a couple of photos of Jazz.
Here's a couple of Andres.
Juan in a scrouto loop. :-)
And lastly, a nice trio of sails.
More wind in the next four days of so... it has been quite a windy winter so far. Even though the big NW swells seem to be already gone, Hookipa is still often head high... no complains on my side.
