October Fest

October Fest

Posted on Nov 9, 2013

October madness tore through town like a Tasmanian devil. As usual it was a month full of action on and off the water. The winds blew the ocean rolled out its red carpet of mast high rolling waves for the contest. Our Aloha Windsurfing Clinic kick started the month with manageable waves and light winds which built through out the week and...

Waves, Sunsets & Smiles

Posted on Oct 4, 2013

Change, growth, learning, loving and moving on. Summer into fall. Some changes are harder to handle than others, but summer into autumn is one of my favorite changes of the year… When the endless flat waters of the northern hemisphere come alive once more….The quiet months of July and August of Ho’okipa beach park explodes into a flurry of action...

SUPer Hero Boards

SUPer Hero Boards

Posted on Sep 8, 2013

SUP boards are like super heroes. They can do and be anywhere. They can surf waves, paddle oceans like canoes, white water raft rivers and by attaching a sail they are ‘windsurfable’. SUPs are a five water sports in one kind of deal. Now that there are inflatables ( SUPs that can be filled with air like plastic inflatable rafts), they are even...

Yet there is another side to Maui’s daredevil ways… Light morning breezes...

I bumped into Levi yesterday who stated, “Dude I chicken jibed in July, it’s been pretty freaking good actually”! It sounds like the north shore offered up some sneaky wave sessions this month while we were away! At the moment though, we’re back to normal Maui summer time patterns. One foot slaps at Ho’okipa, SUP surfing on...

East Side

East Side

Posted on Jul 17, 2013

Love cruising around the marinas, piers, coastlines of New England’s islands. East Coast summer vacation style… Lobsters, oysters, thick accents, quaint towns, widow’s walks, ticks, long beaches, boating and Great Whites. It’s basically where Jaws was filmed. When we weren’t sea glass hunting, reading up on the local history or...

Aloha Windsurfing Clinic May 2013

Posted on Jun 10, 2013

This year’s May Clinic brought plenty of wind with small to no waves as the week progressed. The first day of sailing started with no holds barred, with the wind tearing up to 40 mph across Maui’s water. This is not always our favorite way to start a clinic, but we weren’t complaining as these were the first winds in weeks. The improvers...

Temperamental Winds and Surf Happy

April/May have been a good mix of windsurfing, surfing, SUPing, gardening and yoga. The sunsets have been gorgeous, the days have been getting longer and the backyard pool is back up to dip out of the heat. The Humpback whales have all left for Alaska while lychee and mangos come into season. Our tomatoes are hanging like red xmas bulbs all over the garden...
