Windsurfing Lesson at Kanaha with Matt

We’re currently into one of the longest no wind / light wind streaks I’ve seen here on Maui in a long time. We’re already about three weeks into it and though it looks like trade winds might return next week they’re forecast to still be very light.

Here’s a little video Matt Pritchard put together from a private lesson at Kanaha.

And, he’s also posted some notes from a student on Pritchard Windsurfing with some commentary.

    Is that video showing light wind windsurfing on Maui?

    According to the video description, the guy was on 4.7 and 4.2 – not what I would call light wind windsurfing. Keep in mind the GoPro cameras don’t seem to pick up white caps so in those GoPro videos it always looks less windy than it really is.

    I am the guy from the video – it was shot on Feb 23, and definitely not light wind. Looks like I got lucky – the light wind streak started just after I left.
