Alright! The Maui Makani Classic is here at Ho’okipa! Looks like we will be getting some big waves in the next couple of days. We hope for some nice wind to come along too! I love this contest. It is in my backyard and in my playground that I play in everyday. I love all the action and energy of the event. Ho’okipa is such a special place, especially for windsurfing, and it is so great to share it with some many people from around the world.
Today, since there were no waves, they had the opening ceremony and Hawaiian blessing.
Excited for tomorrow…

I’m thrilled to be a part of such an awesome team. This team is different. This team is not only about getting out on the water ripping and having fun, but also has a passion for giving back to the world and the water that we use.
Positive H2O is a movement for clean water that brings together a community of athletes, conservationists, non-profits and companies, which help to facilitate local solutions on a global scale. We promote a lifestyle that is healthy, conscious, creative and in harmony with the environment. Having clean oceans and access to clean drinking water and sanitation for people in need are at the top of Positive H2O’s priorities. These are issues that effect us all.
Fun night out with my surf buddy, Marina! There were a couple DJ’s set up outside in Paia and everyone was dancing under the stars and in the trade winds! Super Fun! I love this shot of Marina duck diving at Honolua by.. shot taken by Giora Koren.
