We're so lucky over here.
Yet another day of near perfect wave sailing conditions at Hookipa. Light offshore and clean waves. Lots of people out (that's why I only said "near" perfect...), also because Kanaha is still closed. Hopefully it will be open by Tuesday, since it will be way too big (for me!) up the coast.
I took some pics between sessions, but first I'd like to publish again a remarkable shot of Andres from the previous post. A couple of friends decided it was worth a little editing and here's a couple of results.
This one looks like a painting.
As I stated already, I almost never edit/crop my shots. My aim is not to sell the photos (although occasionally I do) and I can't be bothered to post process the shots. I believe that writing comments and all the other stuff I talk about adds to the content of this blog much more than editing a photo to make it nicer... fortunately I have readers that take care of that!! :)
Here are yesterday's shots in chronological order.
Someone was showing off another piece of the collection.
If you push too hard on the back foot, your fins spin out and your bottom turn can end up like this. Colin, I do it all the times too...
I sold that sail to Kevin about 3-4 years ago... A Superfreak will last indefinitely.
Aurelien is trying goiters. He let me try his board and I liked it a lot. I'm definitely in board testing mode.
One more bottom turn spin out example. Aurelien.
Nico (the Corse) makes the blog!
It's Monday morning and the Waimea buoy shows 6 feet at 14 sec from 332. That means another awesome day of light wind wavesailing on big waves. I have an afternoon shift, so I plan to hit the water early.
But the really big day will be tomorrow. The wind will be stronger and a new swell generated by the low pressure on the left of the chart below will peak mid day at around 12 feet. That means significant breakers on the outer reefs, Jaws and all that jazz...
Be safe out there and have fun!!!
