Two windsurfers dominating the scene (from my point of view) last Sunday at Hoo.
The new and the old school: Kauli Seadi and Robby Naish.
Different styles, lines, moves. Both absolutely lovely to watch... I really enjoyed my photo shooting session.
Here's Kauli with a goiter.
Here's Robby with a push loop (that looks like a huge goiter on port tack instead...).
How's that as a windsurfer? And I don't even know her? Da hell is wrong with me?!?!
Pascal, name (and phone number) please!
Kauli was on a NP first. Then he saw Robby in the water and switched to his old Naish... Maybe he still has a few days on the contract and was afraid to get busted?!?
Here he is again, demolishing a lip. Too bad for that sail in front... oh well, at least it's a Fire!
Robby's aerials are not too shabby either. What I like in this (overexposed) photo is the smile of my friend Pato (on the Ezzy) that knew that Robby was on the wave in front of him and was totally expecting to see him blast through the lip... he doesn't look disappointed, does he? (click on the photo to see better)
Trust me, even if you've lived in Maui for a long time, it's still a great pleasure to be right in the middle of this kind of action.
As promised, here's a photo of Kauli's beautiful sister. I know... you can't see her incredible eyes and smile, because she is shooting his brother. But I have a feeling that somebody will enjoy this photo anyway...
Ahhhh, brazilian girls...
Not done with the aerials yet. Here's Pascal... sweet, brah!
And here's Jason Prior with a brand new move. Gotta work on the landing.
Plenty more photos (Robby was in jumping mood) in this slide show.
And now I apologize for spoiling such a remarkable display of windsurfing and beauties, but I promised to publish a photo of me wearing a maui addicted t-shirt.
Not sure that'll help the sales, though...
