I came here to test and to windsurf as much as possible. I like sailing here at Ho’okipa. I can get some good pictures, my friends are all here and I love sailing with good sailors in Hawaii. At home I sail alone a lot and we don’t get so many waves. Sailing with other guys motivates me. Guys like Levi Siver, Brawzinho, Victor and Kauli. Hopefully we’ll have another PWA here again so it’ll be good training for that. It’s a privilege sailing here when the conditions are good. I like Hawaii. We needed to test some boards and the easiest and best place to come was Maui. The vibe at Ho’okipa is really cool, but it’s really crowded. I get my share of waves, a lot of people respect me and I respect those who respect me. If a guy tries to take my wave then I go for him! Some guys have no idea. If they take my wave once, I will take his wave until he stops! Some days there are a lot of people out there who don’t know what they’re doing. They just want to sail Ho’okipa because it’s cool to say they’ve done that. Last week there were three photo shoots at the same time – NeilPryde, Fanatic and North and Simmer – it was carnage! I wouldn’t mind, but it’s always the best days!
