I promised more photos from 21 okt. So here you have a album with some of the tough women, at Ho’okipa. As you can see, there is not only the guys who goes down the line in big waves.
For me lately lots of new experiences. Was out on Kuau for my first time some days ago. When I am windsurfing a new spot I typical have what I called a lot of fear factor advisers in my head. I don’t see the possibilities, and have a tendency to see the problems. I will make an article about how to deal with fear later on some day. As many readers know have Kuau a small channel with current, and when you come back in you have to stay to the left in the channel to stay out of the current who could take you out again. But for me I think I now have the swim record in this channel, swimming like I was in Olympic games or something, over rocks and everything, and I was back on the shore faster I could know, but with some wounds after meeting with some rocks. (glad I can follow my wounds articles) :-)
I had so much support that day on the beach, everybody was supporting me to have a good time out there, my friends Jorgen, Sigurd and Pascal and Nadia and more.
Jake Miller about going out there. My experience now is that there are so many friendly people all over Maui, also at Ho’okipa, smiling at you, support you, and want you to have a good time on the water. Yesterday my windsurfing friends Jorgen and Sigurd left Maui and are on their way back to Norway. It was so cool to stay here with them. So for me today I had a day without doing anything special. My body and mind really needed some rest. I have a mussel in my arm that hurt a bit so a day with rest was good.
The forecast looks good now, in a couple of days we will probable have both wind and swell again. Lower Kanaha here I come…I look so forward windsurf there again on the familiar friendly spot, and take long rides from the channel and down to kite beach.
I am now also writing on a new cool article I will post later on. It is a really useful article for every windsurfers, I will not expose now what it is about…keep following the blog :-)
