This is a (long) photographic report of a day at the beach(es).
Let's start with the photo that I called: jurassic harness.
Actually, OPEN ocean surf gear is a pretty cool name for a brand that makes (or made) windsurfing accessories... but you just can't put the logo there, come on!
Or maybe they did it intentionally, in which case congrats for the humor!
Click on the photo and see what I mean...
Right, and now with the boom that high, the diaper, I mean the harness that low and the lines that short... how in the world are you going to hook in?! You need a ladder, brah!!
Oh well, the wind was super light anyway... so light that the waves at lower Kanaha were exclusively populated by standuppers... or should it be standlowers in this case?
For all the newbies of this sport, here's a document that explains the etiquette.
IMO, it should be printed by all the shops and given to the clients who rent or buy standup boards. It should also be printed on signs on all main surf breaks.
Let's move on to the next character. This is Alan, who once I heard saying:"here in Kanaha, I'm more famous for my napping than for my sailing!"... hysterical.
By the way, he really is, considering that he takes daily fat naps on his board bags under a tree.
Throwing sand on the beach with Dad's hat on MUST feel good.
Italian foot at ease in hawaiian slippah... very symbolic.
Mr. Cabrinha goes for a stroll.
And now let's move to Hookipa. Young kids were ripping at Pavils. This one is 13 at most.
The beach scene was more relaxed.
Well, can't really relax with things like this around...
Ops, she found a spot on her right leg!
Ops, she found another one on her left leg!
...whales flapping tails...
...wild tropical birds...
...it's easy to understand why this guy is so stoked to be in vacation in Maui!
