IMG_1037IMG_0764Change, 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….IMG_0932IMG_1182IMG_10941379369_573518349352500_905201018_n-1The quiet months of July and August of Ho’okipa beach park explodes into a flurry of action as the first winter swells knock on the door. It’s bumper to bumper, if you’re lucky to find a parking spot… The cove is littered with surfers, stand up paddlers and windsurfers all trying to get their wave fix after a long dry period. The Maui winter crew come back to the beach after a summer of hibernation and a species of migrating windsurfers flock back to our shores once again. You know it’s fun time again when you see Massimo from Italy, Manuel from France and Robby Naish from Haiku returning to share relatively empty autumn wave sessions.IMG_0958 IMG_1158IMG_0933Sometimes you don’t need to travel too far to feel like you’ve been somewhere new… With new friendships comes new adventures, creative space and a fresh ways of seeing the world.993933_566809566690045_257816722_n

September as usual has been magic. Waves, sunsets and smiles…
