Watch the Sign

The wind has been AWESOME this last weekend. Yesterday some nice waves and today flat water freestyle with some waves that were good enough for my first serious backloops. Days fly by when you're having fun. I'm almost a month on the island already. I will start planning some movie stuff soon! And you know I will let you guys know on time ;).

Supermarket crazyness. This is how we roll in the US. 2 hamburgers?.... NOOOO 30!  1 liter of Coke..... Hell noo. At least 50 cans. So that's how it goes. To live cheap on Maui you buy Bulk. Everything in big loads. Here are some examples, but I will definately post again, because I love Bulk.

Out of Control

Today 4.4 overpowered action. Sailed at Uppers Kanaha, Camp one and it was sick! Super difficult because there is chop coming from every side. Could try the 4.4 to the max. I also tried the 16 Black project freestyle fin. Good grip and slide. Tommorrow we're going to set some GPS records and some crazy supermarket stuff. Hopefully I can also try the 4.0 Freestyle pro tommorrow.

Kona one

Windsurfing, surfing, swimming, designing..... everything is happening here on the island. Wind has changed its direction for Kona these days. Really light but good for an early morning surf and sometimes a later windsurf session. Tommorrow some rest and work on the all new Hotsails sail bags. Freestyle pro is going to be a crazy one! Keep you updated. Aloha!

Freestyle, wave, slalom, you can do it all. I do hav eto say that this was the bumpiest freestyle session ever. Timing is crucial and there is chop everywhere. Kinda like Fuerte but the other way around. So freestyle was hard and really ahve to get used to the conditions, but the wave session afterwards was a lot of fun. Not really big and good to try stuff on.

The Office

The office / the people at the office / the stuff in the office. Woowww so much to experience when you're here on the island. I'm now here for two days and had two completely different sessions. On with pretty big waves and I was on my Patrik trailerwave 78 and Hotsails Firelight 5.5. I never use a 5.5. And today There were some waves, but definately not as high as yesterday. Way way smaller. But with a 4.2 pretty powered up. 

Below you can find Chris Freeman working his @$$ off. Than we got Bart de Zwart, who charged Jaws yesterday. Some good pictures are allready circulating on facebook. And last but not least we got Tom Hammerton, Hot saildesigner. 

I started on some small stuff. We'll be doing a video interview soon and a lot more coming up!
