It's been a big week on Maui with rare strong Kona winds. Particular storm systems make the Kona wind blow side offshore (very offshore) from the left on the north shore of Maui. That changes the waves by making them hold up a lot longer and it also means the windsurfers sail the waves in the opposite direction than they normally do.

Check out fellow blogger and Maui resident Giampaolo's web site for a recap of the week with great pics and video:

It's amazing footage...probably the most talked about windsurfing footage online that I've ever seen! I like Robby's description of the day: "Windy".

50 knot gusts and mountainous waves!
