No, this post is not about the sex habits of marine mammals.
It's about the craziest looking board on the market: the AHD Sealion.
Here's a little video I shot today (8-10 knots of wind).

Hey, how apropos was the title of the song?!!
Ok, I know you guys want to see where the camera was... One of those sticky plates that come with it. The safety line proved to be unnecessary.
Here's another video that the designer Bruno Andre put together.
And here's some standup photos (the yellow board is Jeff's).
I'm not telling where that wave is... not even under torture. What a discovery!
Too bad that since that day I haven't seen it working again.
I guess it's very tide dependent... you really don't want to fall there!
End of another day at the office.
Talking about offices, here's Hot Sails Maui designer Tom Hammerton's working table with his latest creation: the Fire Power Edition. It seems, in fact, that in Maui we are a little weird and we want sails that kill the power (that the gusty side shore wind offers in abundance). It also seems, in fact, that in other parts of the world they actually want sails as powerful as possible! Weird...
Well, it was spectacular out there today.
I timed my session right with the rising tide and those waves were just beautiful.
Up the coast it got pretty freaking big, with plenty 10-14 footers (lots of tow-in action).
Tomorrow, more of the same. Check Pat Caldwell forecast... a really good looking one.
It's going to be a busy week here in Maui.
Don't worry you guys... I'll make sure that all those waves won't go wasted.
