John Skye in South Africa and Maui

UK pro John Skye wrapped this year up in a respectable 8th on the PWA wave tour. Check out his latest clip as he hits up Maui and South Africa.

I really should go somewhere different, but everything is so set up for the South Africa/Maui winters. Roberto has base camp set up in South Africa for all the testing, and then we always head to Maui for the photoshoots. I get sailing on both sides, conditions are always great and I guess the biggest factor is we have learnt over the years the best way to the most out of each trip. So this is South Africa and Maui – Again!

Save Access To Kanaha for windsurfers

Kanaha Beach is one of the Worlds most popular windsurfing beaches, perfect for beginners to pro sailors. However it is now in danger of being closed to windsurfers.

Sign the petition to help keep it open.

State DOBOR is considering enforcing a 25 year old rule that would block the current access for most water users from over 3000 feet of Kanaha beach shoreline.

The current level of access has been enjoyed by generations of surfers, windsurf, kayak, outrigger canoe, standup, fishermen, and divers. The current arrangement has been accepted by the community for 25 years. There was a good balance that made sense with different areas designated to their most suitable uses. The Old rule that was intended to create exclusive swim zones located close to the lifeguard tower, and the current swim zone (marked by buoys) has been used and respected for two and a half decades. Also several years ago the lifeguard tower was moved and since then the life guards themselves have set up a new swim zone, adjacent to the camp ground, right next to the new tower. This arrangement also works very well, but this new swim zone would also be lost if the old rules aren’t changed. If this happens access will be blocked for a huge part of the shoreline and most of the user groups will be displaced. This will lead to overcrowding and potential problems in the remaining areas. We want the DOBOR to change the outdated rules to reflect the current use, and officially recognize the new swim zone as well. Please help protect ocean access for all water sports users at Kanaha Beach.

REVERSE – feat. Antoine Martin

Check out this cool clip from radical wavesailor Antoine Martin.

REVERSE is a video about Antoine Martin’s last winter in Maui. We named this video REVERSE for two reasons. The first is that the conditions are reversed in Maui compared to Guadeloupe, Antoine`s home spot and the conditions he normally sails. Because of this we also reversed the sequences rather than an original edit.
