    Mark Raaphorst built a new camera mount that we connected to the back of a SIC race board. I teamed up with Livio Menelau to take it out for a test run. We paddled from Maliko Gulch to Kahului Harbor riding wind swells on hollow, light weight SIC V1 Bullets with built in active steering systems.

      The wind was blowing 20-30mph. Conditions were perfect for surfing open ocean swells down the coast of Maui on an unlimited board from S.I.C. This video was shot with an Ion Air Pro. Music by Jake Shimabukuro

        After a long summer in Europe without much windsurfing, I returned home to Maui to prepare for the upcoming Aloha Classic World Cup at Hookipa. My training for the contest focused on the fundamentals of waveriding: turns. "Back to Maui Part 1: Training," starts with a messy 360 captured on my first day back in the water, and as the edit progresses you can see my sailing improve as I get back into the Hookipa mindset. We shot this footage on 3 separate days during the 2 weeks before the contest. Part 2 will feature my windsurfing from the Aloha Classic. Music: "Walla Walla" by Glass Animals

          The four of us met the boat captain at Mala Wharf and loaded the boards and canoe onto the boat racks. The captain took us up to Honolua Bay where we unloaded and started our 27 mile adventure. The wind was gusting up to 45mph and we caught countless glides all the way to Kaunakakai Harbor on Molokai.

            Speed run and a 360 at West Kirby, Jan 2013. Filmed using the k4 Harness Mount and extension with Gopro Hero HD2. Not a fast day, but definitely a fun one.

              One of Maui's best downwind runs when conditions are right. The Kihei run is known for it's very long glides and easy connections. Kihei runs are also known to have unpredictable winds that can change directions during the run making it very dangerous. The wind was blowing 20-25mph and from the right direction for the entire run on this day.

                  Basic exercises that can be practiced in flat water on a stand up paddle board. This video covers bracing and steering with the paddle. Both of these skills will come in handy on a downwind run.

                      I've been wanting to visit the speed strip at Roa Island for some time -had I known just how beautiful the area is, and how incredible the speed run is, I'd have made the journey a long time ago! I now have a Canon 7d so I thought I'd make use of the video function and do little Info-vids of the places I visit rather than just take pics. I also used the k4harness mount with Gopro Hero2 for the sailing action. Unfortunately the card decided to pop out the slot and loose half the footage, the better half of course :) The speed strip at Roa is amazing, as I hope you can tell from the vid. An easy launch with not much of a walk, pretty much all sand from then on, a well defined channel edge which you can sail within a few feet of most of the time, and a nice large range of usable tide (bank shows below 6m). The sailing club was only recording 23knots of wind, so we didn't do too well on that score, but still managed to latch onto a gust for a 43.7knot max. Serious potential here for top speeds and nautical miles on the right day.
