Week One


Well the wind has been light, very unseasonal for this time of year, but hey, we are in Maui having an absolute ball. We have spent most days at the beach either at Kanaha or over in front of the condo's at Kehei. The wind has shown potential all week, Sunday and Wednesday being the pick of the days, with 20 - 25 knot winds from the East, but the other days have been strange, wind holding in the 18 knot range and very gusty and up and down, cloud and even some rain has held the winds back in my opinion. Here's hoping for stronger winds next week, looking a bit more promising.

We have been giving the BBQ a work out at our house, lots of delicious chicken and sausage meals, washed down with Heineken or the local version of CoopersAle, Its the Volocano Red Ale that has satisfied our thirsts. Some nice wine here as well, although we did find a few nice Aussie 'staple' wines to remind us of home (not that we are home sick)

Here is Phoebe at her windsurfing camp. She is loving it! She has pulled more gybes than me this trip! We have her signed up again next week.

Tarzan Arlo, about the take the swing of death at Twin Falls.....

Twin Falls again, such a great spot.

And heres a few shots of Hookipa last night, nice wind swell and about 14 guys out.


Who's this happy windsurfer? GP in a ponderous post surf moment.......

Footnote: Went out for dinner last night to Casanova's, love that place, great service, great food and great wine.

Yes, I was pondering why I was feeling so crappy... a sore throat/flu kicked in the day after, that's why.
Too much yelling at those students...
Oh well, a little rest is not going to harm. See you at the beach soon (hopefully!).
