Last week I arrived back into OGG after a great week in Mexico with the AWT, as typical it was straight back into work and I didn’t see the outside for a week so it was great to have a few waves at the weekend. OK waves is stretching it a little and Jimmie’s pictures make it look better, its a good job that Jimmie doesn’t post videos each day as his images are flattering!
It is great to think that waves are only a month away and for most hanging out on the North Shore of Maui they cannot come soon enough, while many have traveled in search of summer action many have to stay year round to work and be with families etc.
In Mexico I tried a new board and I must admit it has been riding really well, a lot wider than I have been using and really loose on the wave, it is always great to try new things.
Funny picture this one, love how the pink of the sail is reflected into the water and love how you cannot see the board at all, not sure I survived this encounter!
Looking ahead I am off to Peru in a week for the next leg of the AWT but more of that to follow… also making plans to go to the UK for a month and maybe some Cornwall action, a place where surprisingly (being from the UK) I have hardly ever sailed!
More to follow…
