Maui 2011, day 15

Today I went to have look at Kuau and Hookipa right after breakfast. Kuau was pretty messy because of the high tide and Hookipa was big, rather disorganized and >10 surfers on line-up. When I came back to the house the kids were doing their homework while karin was reading a book. Lukas finished his swedish homework for the whole trip and Rasmus managed to finsih his math.

We had a look at the different windcams and decided to have a go at Kanaha. When we arrived at the parking lot the wind was already between 20-30 knots. I rigged up my 4.7 and went out on the quad. Decent sets broke in nice head to logo high lines despite the high tide. I got countless rides but felt violently overpowered at times so I switched to a 4.2, had some water and a power bar and went back out. Got pretty dialed in on the Quad and had a few really good waves even though the faces were quit choppy. Kanaha is like one giant playground if you're into wavesailing. You can ride all day and the wave doesn't punish you that hard if you wipe out. So, you can go big and wipe out big without having to worry about your gear or your health.

Unfortunately we didn't bring anything smaller than 4.2 so Karin had to wait for the wind to drop - but it never did.

Rasmus and Lukas never seem to get tired of the beach. They boogieboard, swim and climb the trees they're not allowed to. Today they also helped five crabs to get new homes in the sand, Lukas proudly told me.

On the way home we stopped at Safeway to get some more pasta and some donuts. Back home we had the rest of the pasta sallad and some chicken-mayo baguettes together with a well earned Heineken.
