Happy International Surfing Day, whatever your choice of craft.
This photo was taken by Darrell Wong in late 2012 on a spontaneous shoot off Maui, Hawaii. It represented one of the finest days of stand-up paddling we have ever had here in Maui. This glassy, and this far off-shore (about a mile). We waited about 10 years for this.

If you like high-speed downwind windsurfing racing, there is only one place to be this weekend: The BLUESMITHS Maui Slalom Race at Kanaha Beach Park. It’s the first event in the legendary 5-part Maui Race Series
It started small three years ago, but with 200 paddlers last weekend it feels that Bluesmiths Paddle Imua Benefit Race is fast on its way to becoming a world-wide calendar event for the paddle sports community.
