Back to Maui!

I returned to Maui in August, and have been blessed with top notch conditions throughout the period. I have been sailing almost every day. There has been a steady supply of small windswell waves to play with, and more recently a large out of season North swell arrived. The North swell provided some really epic conditions with 4.2 winds and logo to mast high+ waves breaking across the reefs. It was nice to have good power in the sail giving opportunity for massive jumps and powerful waverides.

I was having a great time when I crashed on a pushloop. My foot got twisted and yanked out of the footstrap injuring some ligaments. Fortunately I do not have any broken bones and look to be back on the water soon. For now, it is a very sore foot and no sailing.

I did get a few nice pictures of sailing, prior to my foot injury on that day. The water shots were taken by Dave Baker. He can be found at http://hotsurfphotos.com/view_photog.php?photogid=3. The jump was provided by OES Australia Maui.
