Maui 2010 week IV

Jaws Going Off

OHHH MY GOOD, this week we got some serious waves. Forget about the missing wind. All the beaches on the northshore off Maui was closed for bouth surfing and windsurfing, except for one!!!! Peahi, aka JAWS. Tormod and I was up before the sun and enjoyed the sunrise at Jaws where there only was a couple off cars who had beaten us and got there before us. We had heard the waves thundering against the reefs and beaches all a'round the northshore during the night and it was hard to get a good nights sleep. The sight that apeared it self for us when the sun was rising at Jaws was avesome. The waves came thundering inn against the reef and rose to a wall off water. Pretty soon the first team off the tow inn surfers was seen bellow us an at about half past 6 in the morning the first surfer was riding on one off the gigant waves on jaws. When we left Jaws around 12 o'clock it was totaly caos in the canefields, there where cars everywhere and even if the last surfers had left the sceene there where still a line of spectators trying to get down to the cliff's for a look. Most people prefere to drive down the slippery dirtroads trough the canefields to get down to the cliffs where you can get a close look at the waves, it takes about 30-40 minuttes to walk from the highway and down so I guess you can't blame them. But next time get up in the morning so you don't miss the show.

Maui Week IV

During the first days after Jaws the north shores beaches was more or less off limits to windsurfers due to Highsurf advisory combined with light and very gusty wind. The rain is also pooring down som most off the time I have been surfing at Launiupoko beachpark just south off Lahania. To morrow its friday and it looks like we are going to have a great weekend with nice tradewinds, hughe waves and no rain. Could bee a realy nice weekend with a lot of windsurfing action on Kanaha and maybe Kuau and Ho'okipa
