The punishment came in a viral form that knocked me out in bed for four days. Today I was finally able to step outside, but I still have a sore throat, so I'm not out of it yet.
It's definitely going around a lot in Maui these days.
I missed some of the best surfing days of the year, but that's ok... it could be worse and there will be more epic days.
Small Kona conditions saw some sailors out at Lanes. I don't have a favorite one, so here are my photos in chronological order. Gonna try that "add a caption" feature, so for the first time, the caption will be under the photo, not above.
The caption font is kinda small, please let me know how you like it.
|believe it or not, I don't know who this is|
|everybody know who this is intead. Or at least, everybody know his photos. Mr. Jimmie Hepp.|
|As he often does, Morgan got better throughout his whole session|
|Josh Stone came down with his kid from the upwind neighborhood...|
|...and as always left his mark of style and stoke.|
|Glenn brought me groceries yesterday. Not exactly the sexiest of the nurses, but better than nothing! Thanks brah, eh!|
|And that's when Philip Koster entered the arena.|
|His aerials were precise and powerful|
|Kai Lenny was no slouch either|
|the german kid was definitely at ease on this tack...|
|...but he's still only sailing Uppers on starboard tack. Afraid not to be the best one at Hookipa like a PWA champion is expected to be? Sponsors' order? Lack of car ride? Who knows. I'll send him a message and ask him...|
|despite that, the beginning of 2012 remains epic from all point of views|
I just hope I'll be back in the water soon. :(
