Novela das 8

We kick-off the series with Maui, the place Kauli describes as his ‘school of life’: ‘Maui is definitely one of the Mecca’s of windsurfing. It’s the place where all pro sailors meet to do photo shoots and train, and I was super happy to be able to go there in 1999 for the first time and sail the famous Hawaiian waves over the corals and caves! My first years I was staying there for over four months at a time to practice, and it helped me a lot because the level of the other sailors was pushing me so much. Maui was my school of life, it was where I learnt to really live on my own, do the things that I never do at home, stuff like cooking, shop for food, clean the house, wash my clothes… So much work man! Luckily I had 30 t-shirts so I could do the washing only once a month haha. I haven’t told this to anyone before, but I learnt to make pasta in Maui. It was what me and Charles Boggis ate every day for four months, pasta with Prego sauce, the only recipe we knew!’

Having done many trips with Kauli Seadi over the past, photographer and filmmaker Brendan Pyatt built up a close relationship with the multiple world champion. From this friendship Kauli asked umi to take over a special project: putting together a portrait of his windsurfing of the last four years. Kauli and his friends documented most of the trips they went on, leaving them with hours and hours of footage from a variety of locations. But what to do with all this raw action?

Novela das 8 shows Kauli in Chile, Cape Verde, at home in Brazil, Maui and Jaws and also features a chapter on the PWA events, a look at his amazing competition performances. A thank you to the guys at Quatro Naish, on whose gear he earned his first two world titles, and a warm welcome to his new sponsors JP NeilPryde.
