Oluwalu longboarding

had to return the board at 10am, so we hopped in our sweet Chevy Malibu and drove down the coast for an early morning session down at Oluwalu. I wanted to try a different spot, but everything else was small to the point of being unrideable. I was all by my lonesome for almost the entire session, which is the best part about surfing when there's harldy any swell in a wave rich area like this. Reminded me of a few fun sessions I've had at Steamer Lane when it was too small for anyone else to bother.

maui wauwi

practically skunked as far as surf goes, but i managed to get a few small wave sessions in. i rented a 6'4" NSP fishy thing from Local Motion in Lahaina. The people at the shop are super nice. I drove the coast and ended up surfing a little left called Oluwalu. It was teeny, so most rides I was focused on just getting enough speed to stay afloat. The swell dropped even more, so after my session I traded in the 6'4" for a 8'6".
