Surfing Honolua Bay, Maui

Searching for the green room
  Welcome back to Maui! Honolua style. 

Back in Maui for Heidi's spring break we snuck in a quick trip with friends up the west coast to the fabled wave at Honolua Bay. We weren't sure what the waves were going to look like but we took long boards just in case it was small. It wasn't.

   After a few small waves out at the point, we paddled over to the cave where the waves looked a bit bigger. Turns out we could have used boards about half this size but we charged nontheless. We put those boards to the test and came out smiling.

  All three of us did our best to keep Heidi busy on the camera. She was perched high above the cave about sixty feet over all the surfers. Some of the longer waves took us right under her giving the shots an almost aerial feel.

Steep takeoffs at Honolua
  This provided a great opportunity to show off the steepness of some of the waves. It wasn't always easy making the drops with longboards but we did our best and I even got a barrel for my efforts. It may be the last time I get to surf a winter north swell in Honolua Bay for a while but it should hold me over.
