waves, culture, aphorisms

Month: November, 2011

no wind

Maui is a bit windless at the moment. Tuesday and Wednesday then are rest days and errand days. So, nothing new to report. The forecast might be alright for the latter part of the week. Fingers crossed!

pushing forward

The swell is dropping here on Maui but don’t fear as there are more waves on the horizon! Monday was fun but kind of frustrating. I was excited to push myself hard, but I ended up being too amped and falling a lot. I had some big wipeouts. On one of them, I fell over […]

Maui Monday: 11/21-11/28/11

  Last week was a bit slow but it ended with quite an explosion of sailing on Sunday. The large North swell and strong northerly winds prompted waking up at 7am to head over to a not-so-secret secret spot. We got to this spot at 9:30am and three people were already on the water with […]

new week

I’m destroyed from a long long long day on the water windsurfing. I left my house at 8am and got back at sunset. A Maui Monday will be up in 12ish hours. For now, check my trip to Japan from January:

consumed by windsurfing

  Every part of my body hurts. The bottom of toes are torn off by board texture and coral reef. My back and sides are bloody from the harness rubbing. Small, infected cuts and punctures wail in pain all over my skin. Getting in the water at the start of my session was a blast […]

board with fins

  With some decent swell, I can test boards and tune my quiver to be ready for the coming waves. With a brand new stick from quatro, I was set for a full day of testing and tweaking. The Keith Teboul custom has 5 fin boxes so I can ride the board with 4 fins, […]

Maui Monday: 11/14- 11/21/11

  The waves are coming! The waves are coming! This last weekend marked the return of swell. But more importantly, this next week is forecasted to be consistently full of waves and in a week or so it should be decently big! I got a new board (pics tomorrow) and it turns amazingly! I can […]
