tomorrow: car hunt

by Graham

Finally back on Maui full time, I now need a full time car. So, I’m waking up at 6:30 on Thursday to spend the morning checking out cars for sale on the island and what options are available to me.

Wednesday’s sailing was fun. Testing a new 5.0 that’s a bit shorter and trying to get some nice tweaked airs. A japanese tourist ran into me though and my favorite board now has a massive ding on the rail. What a birthday present! It reminds me of my 16th birthday when I broke my leg badly while trying to invent a new way to do air takas. I rotated it perfectly but landed backwards in the curl of the wave with so much force that I broke my fibula near the ankle. I was out for 2 months. But in the 2 months I had the opportunity to be a judge for that year’s Aloha Classic. A broken board is much better than a broken bone!

If I get some photos from Jimmie Hepp, I’ll post them here. Until then, you’ll have to suffer with my prose. And now I’m off to bed!

I loved tweaked airs. This one was fun.
