It's been a couple of awesome days at Hookipa.
I especially liked wednesday. Slightly underpowered on a 4.7, unusually not so gusty wind, clean head to logo high waves. A hell lot of people, but all good sailors that know how to share a wave.
Today (thursday) the waves were a bit smaller and it was windier, so I liked it a notch less (4 stars instead of 5!). I had two sessions and in between I took a bunch of pics. Got some good ones. Here are the main page deservers.
Let's start with Browsinho, who was in jumping mood.
I need to get in touch with that photographer and check with him how his photo was. If it was a magazine worthy one, my photo would make a great little inlet photo...
Anyway, I don't know the photographer, but the sailor is Keith Taboul.
Explosive top turn by Taka.
And Browsinho again.
I love this shot. No sponsors, no radical rotations, just a "simple" high jump... so much freedom in this photo.
How about this Taka wipeout?
And the rest in this slide (if the slide stops just click the "x" on the top right corner and it will start again).
Windsurfing, what a wonderful thing.
