Recently the best pro and amateur wave sailors in the world gathered at Hookipa Beach Park to compete in the Aloha Classic wave sailing competition. The competition was extremely heavy day after day.
I was invited to compete in the Grand Masters division but that’s just not my game these days.
Instead I set up my camera and tripod on the bluff above all the action.
I wound up with so many awesome images that I am overwhelmed by the sheer volume of the file.
I belong to a group called “The Kuau Yacht Club”. The K.Y.C. is an informal group of sailors that surf and wave sail together almost every day that the conditions are favorable.
We had several of our members competing in the Aloha Classic so I decided to show case my friends from the K.Y.C.
Here are a few select images that I captured of my mates shredding it up in the competition.

Psyched to check out that surfing and climbing book.

Had a fine go-out at Ocean Beach yesterday. Sunny, glassy, overhead, and consistent. One of those days that makes me wonder why I ever bothered to tie a knot.

I'm stoked to see it as well Gregory.

A new swell arrived yesterday and every one I talked to had great sessions.
I was going to paddle out in my back yard but instead I chose to join some friends down the beach at Kanaha.
Lower Kanaha was well over head in the sets and it was really good.
I struggled with the fact that almost every wave that I paddled for there was already a large man on a SUP powering down the line.
Don't get me wrong I did get some great waves and it was fun surfing with friends but, It just aint like the old days at Kanaha before SUP's!
Maybe I should have stayed home and surfed here at Kuau. It wasn't crowded at all and there were plenty of head to nearly double over head sets rolling through.
I did a photo shoot here in Kuau before going down to Kanaha. Here's a random shot from that photo session.

O-man, when you refer to Kuau, is it the break right out in front of Mama's? Or more west down the coast? Mama's can get kind of gnarly, I've sailed in on big days when it was almost sucking dry on a low tide at the shallowest spot.

Studly that's a good question.
When I refer to Kuau it is more of a general area that stretches from Lanes through Sunrises,Kuau Pipe,Mommas,the area in front of the launch, down to Noriega. The shots I took on 11-29 were at Lanes.
As you mentioned, the break at Kuau Pipe/ Mommas can be extremely shallow at certain tides.Some times it feels like you can almost touch the reef just siting on your board or sailing over it.I have hit the bottom there in a wipe out. In fact just the other day my friend Chris Eubank had some gnarly abrasions on his back from that place.

criminy, they're good in ^^^ Oman's last. Even so, with those crowds and waves, there had to have been some serious injuries?

I have known Dave Kalama for well over a decade and he has done a lot, a real lot. He has been a professional surfer for most of his life. Short board,long board,tow in,and S.U.P.
When Dave talks, I listen.

If you know Dave Kalama, then you must know Haas and Digger, brothers. Haas used to hit the dawn patrol with Kalama regularly, they'd be out there tearing up Hookipa dawn patrol every morning if there was a whisper of wind.
