Jimmie's Jumpfest

Hookipa, Maui
Windsurfing: Waves
1 pm - 2 pm Thursday. August 19. 2010
my rating 3 star rating
Wind Direction: E Wind Strength: underpowered   using 5.1 - 5.5m sail. Swell Direction: N Swell Size: shoulder Tide: - Falling.

Day 2 of Jimmie Hepp’s Jumpfest went off yesterday with much better conditions than on Maui’s north shore. Brilliant sunshine, a small out of season north swell and decent 20mph trades brought out the crowds to Hookipa. With the potential of a north swell plus Kanaha not looking that good, I headed straight to Hookipa. By the time I got on the water around 1:00 it was already way more crowded than I like so I only put in a short session (5.0) before heading in to get some photos and video. Surf was mostly in the waist to shoulder high range with an occasional head high set. Tons of folks out on the water vying for Jimmie’s attention. Here’s a few photos that I snagged.

3 thumbs up!

Thanks guys. Yea, Quatro was dominating the scene yesterday. They usually are one of the more prevalent boards at Hookipa.
