Yesterday was forecasted to have waves on the west side again. Not real big but judging from the surf report and what I saw on the live video cam at Lahaina Harbor I decided to give it a try.
I was skunked again! There wasn't any thing over there that interested me at all. That was $15.00 gas wasted and I still was Jonesin' for a wave so I drove back over to my place here on the north shore and unloaded my surf board and put my bike in the back of my truck.
I drove the 4.5 miles down the coast to Kanaha Beach Park and left my truck there with a cooler with refreshments in it.
I then jumped on my cruiser bike and bucked the stiff 19-25 mph head wind back to my place in Kuau.
I then grabbed my 4.7m sail and 78ltr wave board and walked the block to my local launch and rigged my sail and headed down wind.
I sailed solo down the coast taking my time while reveling in the striking view of the north shore of Maui while dodging sea turtles and spooking flying fish and riding clean open ocean wind swell all the way down to Kanaha.
It was cool to be out on the ocean with just my rig and board shorts and nothing else.
I have been doing this same solo down wind voyage a lot lately and usually have a beer and talk story with my friends that are windsurfing at Kanaha while I de-rig my gear. It was too early in the day to start drinking so I loaded my kit in my truck and headed back home.
Today looks much the same so there's a good chance that I might just do another coast run today.

Greetings from the sweltering southland.... Here is a newish surfcam showing our local pier scene. Should be interesting with some tropical storm action.
www.surfchex.com/follybeach-web-cam.php

As if Olafs Maui stories make anyone want to look at waves in S.C.

Speaking of Maui, I stumbled on this cam showing Momma's and Hookipa...
www.mamasbeachcam.com/

Pretty cool, though the image quality isn't as good as the Lahina Harbor cam..

I ended up looking at properties (Haiku and East side) for over an hour the other day and daydreaming about moving back...what if's coulda shoulda woulda...

Hey Olaf, you see where Hana Ranch is for sale? Only 55 million... 4500 hundred acres... lets do it!

Have fun everyone!

Hay hayun, thanks for posting up on this thread I often feel that I am sorta all alone down hear in the other sports section but when I see the number of page views I know that you guys are out there so I just keep plugging away.
Waves are down again and as far as I can tell there isn't much in the near future. The wind surf is good in fact it's world class every nearly every day.

I am sure that you agree that as surfers we are very fortunate to have live web cams so you can see what going on in real time.
I live right at Kuau where the Hookipa cam is positioned so I don't use it much but the two cams on the west side are a very valuable resource.
They save me the time and fuel it takes to drive over there and check it out.

As far as Hana goes it's one of those places that once you get there you want to stay put. The surf is good most of the time. In the summer it gets the south swells and also has the best wind swell conditions on the island. Realistically it isn't that far at all and the drive is spectacular!

I look forward to more posts from you "Mountain Projecters" more often. Hear!

I had a delightful little glassy waist to shoulder high longboard session on the west side yesterday. It was just me and one other guy so we had great conversation and we both caught plenty of fun right handers for about two hours in the afternoon. Nice summer surfing.

Let's face it,some of the time you're the hunter and some of the time you're the hunted.
