Beautiful Outer reef day

They were calling 15-25 feet. After driving up and down the coast to find the right spot, I met up with Gaimpaolo, together we paddled to the out reef.
It was one of those perfect days. Big and high peeling waves, glassy, now wind and just 4 of us out there and a couple of tow in crews.
I had the HD Go Pro camera mounted on my head,Giampaolo on his paddle. This time I made only pictures. Which this camera does very well by the way.
We stayed out from 7:00 to 11:00, Dagmar took care of the shop. I saw this one coming last week and we sheduled this session as a 'have to go'
Unfortunately the wide angle lens doesn't reflect the actual size of the waves.
Also check Gaimpaolo 's site with more action. http://www.mauisurfreport.blogspot.com/
This is one picture where you can actually see a little bit of the actual size of the waves. The pocket just behind me and peeling in front, what a life. Wooohaa...
Here is a shot of Giampaolo, he also had an awesome day.
Giamo Paolo made this one from his paddle mount.

I broke my leach, the a tow in team helped me back to my board. After that it was a short leach with a big not which held up for another 2 hours.

My version of Ben Stiller, 'There is something about Mary", see Giampaolo's blog. http://www.mauisurfreport.blogspot.com/


Another shot of Gaimpaolo sharing this wave with me.

Look at this perfect shape.
