...when Michelle told me I couldn't believe it.
But here is the news. It looks pretty damn official.
I'm not sure what kind of land natural resources these guys are talking about (it's all lava rocks over there), but if the problem is that the great number of snorkelers and kayakers are damaging the reef, then just forbid that... for god's sake!
Starting August 1st one of the best waves in Maui will not be accessible anymore.
Nothing pisses me off more than laws that prevent people from surfing.
PS. FYI: it's sunday night and I have a flu and a fever. I don't think we will play at the Cafe Marc Aurel tomorrow...
PPS. Just received an email from photographer Ray Mangan. Happy to puiblish the content:
Sometimes it is easy to forget how spoiled we are living on Maui. Hop in a car, and within 15 minutes you can be at any number of world class windsurfing beaches, but what we are forgetting is that sometimes the journey can be just as a rewarding as the destination.
Specially if you're doing the journey with Ashley, I add...
While it might be hard to "go on a windsurf trip," without leaving the island, we sure did try. After 45 minutes of driving, and an hour of hiking, we arrived to our destination, and though the conditions weren't what most of us would call "epic" we made the most of it and thats what counts.
Here's the photos.
