Northshore Maui Coming Alive
It was a great day today. I actually had a day off so I took care of some errands. Then I faxed off a counter offer and was off to the beach. The wind was just slamming today.
I love Kanaha Beach Park located right in front of the Kahului Airport.
This is my country club. My other one is Hookipa Beach park where i have been surfing for 36yrs. I love the scene here. You will meet people from all over the world. Each year they return like Canadian geese. A lot of these travelers become good friends and it's a treat to see them again.
I was talking to my neighbor before I rigged up for a session. His name is Jack and he is 75 years old and pumped about getting out and sailing. I told him Jack you are my hero, when I am your age I hope I am still chargin.
I really liked the colors of this rig.
You find people sailing from all ages and skill levels. One day there is a Japanese girl out just doing amazing tricks and then some guy is charging towards shore and does a forward flip, just crazy.
I don't know if it shows but it was really windy day.
Here are a couple guys going you know Mike it's pretty windy today I think I have had enough.
This is a future ripper. Her parents will have her out there in a year. You see kids that just rip. There parents have been doing it for years and just pass it on.
Here are a group of retired local boys enjoying a few Pau Hana beers with the boys.
The end of the day. Well I had a great time until I got launched upside down by a heavy gust. I landed in the rigging and thought I broke my arm. Then I tried to water start and had pulled a muscle in my leg and couldn't get up. So I swam my rig to shore and limped back to my car. All in all its was a great day. Don't get the idea that alls we do is surf and windsurf. I actually work hard selling real estate. But when the elements come together whether it's surfing or a good wind surf session I am all over it. So if you are looking for real estate on the north shore or Haiku give me a call. This is my backyard and I know it well with 36 yrs on Maui to serve you. www.nickensmaui.com
