Jeff Hernderson interview

In the remote case that someone is still checking this blog, here's a sweet interview with Hot Sails Maui founder Jeff Henderson.

I am lucky enough to have known Jeff for quite a few years now and I can say that he's one of the best guys I've ever met. Sure, I'm supported by his company, but, believe it or not, that has nothing to do with it. He's just a real, true, passionate, innovative guy.
And he absolutely loves windsurfing.

Here's the link to the interview. English version down below.

And now a bit of catching up. Just a bit though.
After an abornormally (or should I say abnoxiously) windy February, March has been so far extremely poor for windsurfing and, as it often is, extremely good for surfing.
Tons of windsurfers have been bummed for the lack of wind (and complaining a lot with me, seen my job as a rental technician at Hi-Tech).
My answer was always the same: "no wind? get a surfboard and go surfing!"

That's what I did and totally loved it. I usually don't like March much, because it's when the spring starts showing up (which means windy and choppy waves), but this one was totally epic... from my point of view.
Now the wind seems to be back (although very light) and all the international sailors that are here for the usual industry photoshoots are going to be put at work (tough one!).
There was no parking today at Hookipa and that's just the start...

Well, I don't like posts withouth photos, so here's a few gopro shots.
This first one is drop at Lanes on a sizey one.

This one is at Kanaha.

And this is Lanes again this afternoon.
