First of all, a reader's email that contributed to inflate my already big ego:
I love your website. It's far and away the most enjoyable presentation of windsurfing and surfing online and in print. After reading for about a year and a half, I decided that I have to travel to Maui and experience this place for myself.
If it's not too much trouble, could you give me your opinion for reasonable accomodations and vehicle. I'm traveling solo for this trip so I'm not looking for anything fancy.
Been kinda busy lately and have no photos/videos of my own. But here's a (long) nice video that Glenn put together with his GoPro wide.

And here's a couple of photos that blog reader Dave sent.

Report. Not much other than a remarkable session up the coast from noon to 1 on Tuesday with logo to mast high waves and perfect 4.7 wind. I heard Hookipa was classic that afternoon but the wind got lighter while Kanaha was quite onshore.
Forecast. Once again, we have a low pressure just north of the islands. There has been a short, but captured fetch for a couple of days and that will generate a big, rough, short period and short lived north swell Thursday afternoon, Friday and Saturday. Big question marks on the wind, that should be onshore first and at some point turn SW during the weekend, but those Kona forecast are always sketchy. We'll see what we get... I'm ready for everything!
Here's Thursday's map still showing that little fetch ('nu fetchetiello', in napolitan).
