Happy New Year!

Well, I haven’t posted anything in a long while. The Maui windsurfing has been pretty non-existent for the past month or so. There has been the odd day every now and again to go sailing, but mostly just a lot of watching and waiting for the wind to come up. Hopefully the trend will change soon.


We did recently get a three day stretch with some Kona winds, which was nice for a change. The Kona winds are very challenging because they tend to be almost straight offshore and are extremely gusty. They can however, be very strong at times. I sailed at full power for about an hour and a half on my 3.5 a couple days ago. It was a treat to have such strong winds, because it is very seldom that I would use this sail on Maui.

Anyway, here’s hoping for a windy 2010, with lots of good sessions and pics for the blog.
