What to do on a sunny, windy and flat Sunday on Maui's north shore?
Easy... a downwind on a standup board!
Looks like this group is making almost a fixed appointment of it every Sunday. The start is at 1pm at Tavares bay. Last Sunday we were 22!
Here's the start.
Michelle's favorite yoga position: the downwind facing dog.
It was blowing up to 30 and it was gorgeous out there.
CLEARLY, I was chasing all the girls to take photos of their bums. This came up the perkiest.
At the end, even a Coors light tastes great!
Well, for a change I took mostly photos (I had the camera on the wrist band), but I did shoot a few clips too. Here's the (weak) short video.
PS. Kelly Slater just won the surf contest in Fiji and he's flying towards his possible ninth world title (not too bad considering he started the season going to events only if the forecast was good...). At 35 he's still the undisputed best surfer in the world.
Here's a well done wrap-up of the last day of the contest. Stay tuned for J-bay!
Talking about surfing, very slow and small start of the forecasted south swell here in Maui. There should be reinforcement towards the weekend.
Yesterday I went for the sunset session only to get skunked and stuck in Lahaina because a motorcycle accident forced the closure of the highway till 9.30.
My take in these cases is: "hey, better stuck that involved in that accident!".
It can always be worse... or (same thing) the glass can always be seen half full...
Plus, I got to enjoy the sunset at Launiupoko completely alone and in total silence with no cars passing by (the police were blocking them in Lahaina). I had a feel of how the islands must have sounded a few centuries ago, before we humans arrived and brought our artificial noises and pollutions with us.
Only the waves and the grasshoppers... how peaceful!
PPS. Any internet gurus that can help with this?
