The new boards are there!

The new Starboards came in yesterday and we have been busy unpacking, mounting straps and fins ever since. One of our youngest members Dax couldn't wait and rigged 1.2 .

New Kodes, still dry.

Next time more action with the new boards. The trades continue to blow. Sail sizes 4.8-5.3.

The last days we also had a new South swell.
I tried out the starboard 9'8" Stand up. Not knowing much about the board , I was pleasantly surprised. It turns on a silver plate and still paddles fast enough to catch any wave.

New Sails & Boards in Kanaha Kai

All the new Hot Sails Maui came in and are ready to go on the water The latest Superfreaks, Fires, Smacks and DDs.
Friday we have all the new Starboards coming in. Kodes, Evos, Evil Twin, Futuras.

The last 3 weeks have been windy as usual in Maui. Most days 4.3-4.7 sails on the water combined with the swell we had this week it's Maui at it's summer best.
I have been out of windsurfing the last 2 weeks due to a little accident I had while doing a Willy Skipper in Sprecks. The foot is still a little sore. No windsurfing for me for another 2 weeks.
But I do have a little SUP down winder video this time, which I have been doing a lot recently. Getting ready for the upcoming races.

Here you can see why a down winder is so much fun. It's a good exercise on the water which involves a lot of technique, endurance and surfing.
So enjoy the video and see you on the water.
Aloha from Maui
