Maui part 2

I've been in Maui for a month now.  There's been some pretty big days at Hookipa with the channel closing out. I've seen Jaws breaking, pretty cool to see it in the flesh.  Defiantly want to come back and try and sail it in the next few years, so long as I have a jet ski!

 The person out hear who has impressed me the most hast to be Katie McAnena.  Paddling off the rocks to sail Jaws was pretty ballsy.  Leaving the guy's and myself  feeling slightly emasculated.

Hookipa a trick place.

It's taken me quite a while to get used to Hookipa.  Very busy, if you make a mistake you miss your wave and or your kit ends up on the rock on bigger days.  Luckily I have only had to kick off the rocks!

I was getting to the point where I was wondering what the hell I was doing here until the break though.  I tried out a custom quatro, which i fell in love with instantly. It improved my sailing so much I had to buy it.  The guys at quatro were super cool and very helpful, even after I pretty much stole the board off them for 4 days.   Now just waiting for the wind to kick back in this week and get on it.

Loved it so much I had to buy it. Sprayed and ready to go.

Katie going balls out putting a lot of guys to shame.  
Sadly ending up on the rocks., the price you have to pay.
