Magic Isle

Hookipa, Maui
Windsurfing: Waves
1 pm - 3 pm Wednesday. May 1. 2013
my rating 5 star rating
Wind Direction: NE Wind Strength: powered   using 4.6 - 5.0m sail. Swell Direction: NW Swell Size: waist Tide: - Falling.

Not enough wind yesterday and headed to the shops early with Nina with the plan to meet Anton at Hookipa. Unfortunately I lost track of time and got there late to find the big fella buzzing.

Hit the water with a very nice 2014 Combat HD that I'd very kindly been lent following the recent photo shoot. After a bit of adjusting from my caddy's original setup I settled in, sailing fitness was lacking and the conditions were pretty tough. Quite gusty and very tough to pick the sets, well I found it tough. The local guys were ripping!

Scored a few nice waves, unfortunately my photographer got distracted by her book so I reckon some of my best waves were missed.

I also forgot how shallow it was on the reef, particularly on a small swell as it breaks in close.

Love this place anyway and so happy to be back
